Working on the 2015 Edition of The Smart Mom’s Guide

BYB logo 2 Hello everyone!

I’m hard at work getting the research done for the 2015 edition of The Smart Mom’s Guide to Cutting Healthcare Costs.

Do you have a story about how you were able to reduce your medical expenses? Did you use my techniques from my previous book to reduce your costs? I would be interested in interviewing you for a possible spot in the book.

As always, I’m available for a free initial consultation to see how I can help you with reducing healthcare costs.

Thanks for your support.

Researching and Reviewing for the 2015 Edition

dreamstimefree_224128 old telephone Hello everyone,

Starting in mid-July, I will be contacting many people and organizations I have worked with in the past to get their input on how the 2015 edition of The Smart Mom’s Guide to Cutting HealthCare Costs can be improved. This will take a lot of in-depth conversations and much needed critiques.

I hope the book will be done in time for next tax season! Hooray?

Any questions? Don’t hesitate to email me at Thanks!

Knowledge is Power, and Learning is Forever

The Holistic Autism Treatment Plan Hello everyone,

It’s been awhile since I’ve last posted. I’ve been busy with another writing project with two people on the social media app, Vine. Co-Authors Jen Dent and Larry Miles are helping me with “Vine Stories: How an App Changed Our Lives”. It will be available by late Spring 2014. More info can be found at

This year has already been one of personal discovery for me. I am a lifelong lover of knowledge. One of the things I hold dear about my father is that he instilled within me a never ending thirst for knowledge and a love of reading. And it has helped me tremendously with helping my son with his autism diagnosis.

The chart shown here is the accumulation of years of learning about various interventions for my son’s autism treatment. There may be overlapping themes, and the information I give should not be taken as professional advice of any kind (For crying out loud, it’s done in paper, pen and crayon! My kids dried up my markers. ahahah).

Some of these items have been done in the past, some are currently being pursued, some have not worked, and some have worked for awhile and ceased to work. There is space for options I have not considered yet. The details as to what methods or treatments did or did not work, the books I’ve read, and other items will be discussed soon, either via webinar or another book! Like I said, I’m ready and willing to learn.

My Books on Healthcare Savings Coming This Fall!

The Smart Mom and Family Hello Everyone,

Been busy crafting the two books on healthcare savings.  The Smart Mom’s Guide to Cutting Healthcare Costs talks about how I was able to save thousands of dollars in medical bills by deducting medical expenses, using my health insurance properly, and taking advantage of Health Savings Accounts.

The second book, The Smart Mom’s Guide to The Affordable Care Act, is a guidebook to how to find the best healthcare for your family and your budget. It is a “short but sweet” read for those who don’t care about the history or politics of the new health care law but want to know how to properly insure their family.

Both books will be available before the insurance exchanges open October 1, 2013.

As always, please email me at if you have any questions.
