Laurie Sepulveda is a team member of Women Who Money and the founder of The Three Year Experiment, a blog about building wealth in order to become location independent.
Laurie is a Spanish teacher, travel enthusiast, and blogger, who spends her days corralling her two boys and husband and reminding her students to say it “en español.” Two years ago, Laurie and her family achieved their goal of location independence and relocated from the Northeast to the Southeast. Now that she's a teacher, they spend their summers traveling or hosting family and friends from all over the world.
Their next big financial goal is getting their kids to college then enjoying a (slightly early) retirement where they'll divide their time between North Carolina and Santiago, Chile, where her husband's from.
When Laurie's not writing about money or dreaming up her next trip, you'll find her running, reading, or trying to play tennis.
