I am a married mom of three young children six years and under. Before entering the blogging world, I worked in higher education for seven years in various capacities. After being laid off in 2007, I went back to school to get my second Master’s degree and starting teaching college courses, which was a lifelong goal. I started www.SavingCentsWithSense.net, a site dedicated to helping families find quality products, store deals, and money saving tips, since I wanted to help others along the path of frugal living. I also love iced coffees and am currently training for my first 5K.
