I write about personal finance, careers, personal development, health and wellness, and leadership. In my free time, I hang out with my family (my husband, two practically grown young men, and rescue lab mix); ride my road bike with friends, run, swim, and occasionally hike and kayak; plan and execute strategy at my church; and figure out how to do things better -- whether investing, running, managing money, listening, or leading.
