Honey Smith has been reading GRS since at least 2008, right when she got her first “real” job and started getting serious about finances. She and her husband Jake are in their early 30s and married in 2012 after dating for six years, four of which they spent living together. Currently, she manages graduate programs at a large state institution, and he is an attorney who recently started his own practice. Between them, they have approximately $200,000 of student loan debt and $30,000 of consumer debt, so she will be chronicling their debt-paydown journey.
In addition to personal finance, Honey is interested in vegetarianism and cooking; gardening (despite living in the desert and having a black thumb); issues in higher education (including the student loan bubble and the slow death of tenure); and animal rights. However, her heart lies with fantasy novels, trashy TV, and Skyrim.
