About Jackie Beck
Debt expert Jackie has a master’s degree from Arizona State University, and has been writing about personal finance since 2006.
Jackie got her experience the hard way. After struggling with debt for years, she learned that paying attention to her money was the key to her financial future. She started paying down debt, built an emergency fund, and began contributing to retirement with a vengeance. As a result, she went from a six-figure negative net worth to financially independent.
Jackie and her husband Miles became completely debt free (including their house) in August of 2012, after paying off more than $147,000. About $52,000 of that amount was consumer debt. She knows exactly what it takes to get out of debt for good, while still enjoying life in the process. She now helps motivate others to do the same.
Jackie is also the creator of the app store hit Pay Off Debt by Jackie Beck, an award-winning smartphone app that’s been featured in O the Oprah Magazine. The app has helped over 54,000 people use a debt snowball to break free from debt.
She enjoys traveling the world, and particularly enjoyed her celebratory trip to Antarctica after becoming debt free. As a Gen X empty-nester, Jackie recently moved from blazing hot Arizona to Michigan, where she lives with her husband and two dogs.
