Instructor Biography

Mary Lewis, Entrepreneur in training & professional penny pincher

"Always be doing cool stuff"

I'm a sales representative by day, but so much more when off the clock. I'm in my early 20's and have already traveled to seven foreign countries, have a full time job in the professional world (without having a BA!), have earned an Associates degree debt free, and continue my education while tackling my full time job and motherhood. Life is short, so I'm always trying to pack in as much excitement and creativity as possible. Join me in the journey.
