Personal Finance Experience

Melody Stampley is a writer and editor who has enjoyed reading personal finance articles since she was a preteen.

Melody recognized her passion for personal finance in 2020, the same year she paid off nearly $25,000 of debt, became a certified Ramsey Solutions Master Financial Coach, a certified Connect Financial Ministries Financial Coach, and started her own personal finance consulting business.

Since then, Melody has hosted financial literacy workshops for children and high-school students, led financial discipleship Bible studies for adults, and offered one-on-one financial coaching consultations and sessions.

Her most recent role, becoming a full-time stay-at-home mom, has further motivated Melody to equip others to teach following generations sound financial principles while they’re young.
