Charis wasn’t always the best with money, and when she and her husband Justin got married, they had over $300,000 in combined debt. After paying off her remaining $27,000 in debt over 11 months using a process she calls Alt Money Choices, Charis and her husband are now debt-free with the exception of their mortgage.
Charis is the author of two books including Alt Money Choices: Securing Financial Freedom One Choice at a Time and she speaks to groups about faith and finance. She is also an Editor for Clark.com and Managing Editor for ClarkDeals.com, a daily deals website started by Consumer Expert, Radio Talk Show Host, and New York Times Bestselling Author Clark Howard. She lives with her husband and puppy Jasper near Atlanta, GA.
