Andrea Deckard is a former HR professional with 10 years of experience working for Fortune 500 companies providing support to internal customers, which included developing strategies, finding and retaining the best talent and creating smart HR processes and systems. Andrea left Corporate America in 2006 to become a stay-at-home mother to her and husband, Paul's, then two boys.
After learning that their newest son would have a kidney disorder and possibly need surgery, Andrea focused diligently on the family budget and ways she could contribute through her savings efforts. Exactly one year after the couple's son had surgery, she saved over $6,500 just by utilizing focused shopping techniques. Through more planning and savings efforts, the Deckard's eliminated their remaining consumer debt in 2010. They live a savings lifestyle!
Andrea has been featured in and on several media outlets and is viewed as the “Savings Expert” in the community. She regularly appears on WDTN, the Dayton NBC affiliate as well as a featured blogger in the Cincinnati Enquirer blog network, Cincinnati.com. Andrea can be heard weekly on the WGRR morning show sharing savings tips and great deals.
Andrea has partnered with several prominent brands by offering consulting and creating social media buzz. Some of these brands include: SC Johnson, All You Magazine, Tide, Subway, Walt Disney World, Nestle, Little Debbie, Savings.com, 94Fifty and The Kroger Corporation. It is her goal to find the value in each brand and relay that information to her readers.
