Hello! I’m a Pacific Northwest native who hates most seafood, loves to garden, cook, hike, camp, run, read, and explore, while lightening my impact on the planet in everything I do.

I’m a mama to one and have been married since the ripe old age of 21 (now just entering my 30s). I work as a LEED AP for a company that builds green, affordable communities in urban areas. I have no plans to quit but am still very much focused on financial independence because it will give me the option to say “I want to be here,” not “I have to be.”

Join me on my journey to tread lightly and (maybe) retire early.
