About Me

Me in our RV in 2018. I do not play the guitar. (It’s Josiah’s.)

I’ve called Springfield, Missouri my hometown since 2002, though I’ve lived a few other places since. On January 1, 2019, my husband Josiah and I returned to Springfield and decided to make it our permanent home base, and since October of 2019 we’ve lived in Springfield’s Rountree neighborhood near Missouri State University and downtown.

I graduated from Missouri State University in 2007 with a degree in English Education, and after that I spent a little over a year teaching English in South Korea. I also briefly taught English in Mexico, returning home to get married in 2011.

From 2011-2016 I taught 7th grade English in Marionville, Missouri, until my husband and I decided to make a career change, sell our home, and buy an RV to live in, a story you can read about here.

In 2017, I started a website, RVinspiration.com, as a place to curate ideas for organizing and decorating RVs. My website evolved into a business which fully replaced my former income. As a result, I’ve learned a lot about online entrepreneurship and marketing as well as the skill of building websites.

Below are some blog posts I’ve written where you can read to learn more about me and my business:
