About Lauren

I created the Adulting is Easy project as my 20's were coming to an end. What started as a concern about how unprepared for retirement most Americans are has morphed into a desire to help young people start preparing NOW by educating them.


I was raised in St. Petersburg, FL, by my parents alongside 2 siblings. My sister is 13 years younger than me, and preparing Jenny for her financial future is a key driver behind this project.

By buying a house in the depths of the Great Recession, I stumbled into 6-figure net worth and started to manage this modest wealth with purpose. 

Now, I have a partner in my husband, Aric, and he and I have surpassed $1 million net worth. This site is a repository of updates about our finances and real estate deals, as well as miscellaneous knowledge people have asked me about.

Note: I have a Business Finance degree from the University of Florida and a Graduate Certificate in Personal Financial Planning from Boston University. Please use the information presented through the Adulting Is Easy blogs, podcasts, and social media to inform yourself and then speak with someone who is licensed to help.
