↟ Break Away Tale NR 86 // @twogirlsandatiny⠀
I’m a 30 year old single-Mom and a MN native, a true Midwest woman! I wear many hats, as I consider myself a multipotentialite. I’m a Certified Veterinary Technician, a dog trainer, I am a beertender for at Finnegans Brew House and the Client Consultant for my tiny house builder,⠀
Midwest Tiny Living. ⠀
I decided to go tiny because I literally couldn’t afford to get a mortgage all by myself as a single woman, but was determined to achieve homeownership. I didn’t want to rent or live in a run down living environment and once I discovered the tiny house movement, I was hooked. I knew I could afford a brand new, custom built tiny home and began my research. It wasn’t until I was nearly killed by a drunk driver that I pushed the project forward.⠀
I met my builder Ryan and we became fantastic friends and I evolved from client, to client consultant rather quickly! This movement has opened so many doors for me. I’ve given speeches at different city councils, advocates for legal parking within those cities which is something I never saw myself doing and now I will be a speaker at Tiny Fest Midwest in June near Omhaha, Nebraska.⠀
A video tour of my house has recently gone viral with over a million views and I have spoken to women and other single moms from all over the globe who were inspired by my story!
