From Drowning in Debt to Debt Free
How one SLP crawled out of the hole of student loan debt in 16 months.
Learn how to pay off your gigantic (or maybe not-so-gigantic-but-still-a-pain-in-the-butt) student loans and other debts in an E-Book written for speech-language-pathologists (SLPs) and soon-to-be SLPs who don't want to be "normal" and take 10 years (or more) to pay off their student loans.

On October 11th, 2019, Kacy and Spencer went to Nashville to do their debt free scream on the Dave Ramsey Show. They paid off 74k in 16 months- and most of that time it was just Kacy using her income as a speech-language pathologist to pay off the debt (as most of the debt was already paid off by the time they were married). Kacy kissed her student loans goodbye on February 7th, 2019 and has been debt free ever since.
It all started with a wake-up call
The first time I sat down to look at my loans, I found myself sobbing in the college library. Looking back, I can only wonder what people seated at the surrounding tables thought of my hysterical reaction: some 20-something girl crying on her laptop. The truth was, I was petrified about what I was going to do with all of these student loans. I knew that I would have to pay it back, but how? I knew a speech-language pathologist (SLP) starting out only made approximately $50,000 a year starting out. The really sad part was- I wasn't even done with my college education and I had three years left.
Fast-forward four years and I still found myself in a mess. I had the same feelings about debt that I had in that library, but without a strategy it was beginning to feel hopeless. I tried budgeting (emphasis on the tried), I looked into re-financing, I considered applying for loan-forgiveness programs, and I turned down many fun opportunities in hopes that it would help me pay off my loans faster.
It took years of doing it "wrong" to finally find what works. Let me fast forward the process for YOU so you don't waste your precious years after college (or any more years) on trying to pay off debt while seeing lack-luster results.
