In 4th grade, Kallie sported two things: an awkward haircut and the title of “new kid.” Her family moved from Crookston to Moorhead, where she went on to graduate from Moorhead High. After graduating, she packed up and migrated south, to the Twin Cities area. There she lived with an amazing set of roommates… her grandparents! She still considers this one of the best decisions of her life. She attended one year at a community college before deciding she would venture back to Moorhead to earn a bachelor’s degree in Public Relations from Minnesota State University Moorhead. Kallie then worked for SCHEELS at the Corporate Office where she planned photo and video shoots in the marketing department. She worked with local talent and also had the amazing opportunity to plan photoshoots for high profile athletes like Carson Wentz. She then went on to work for The Salvation Army in Fargo as the Public Relations Manager. She organized events, fundraisers, and worked closely with fantastic volunteers from the community. In 2016, Kallie made the huge decision to buy a house in Barnesville. She closed on her 25th birthday and moved in with her dog, Lily. In 2017, she began dating a long-time friend (not all love is love at first sight!) and got married in March of 2019. She and her husband, Jordan, enjoy traveling, the outdoors, live music, and finding treasures during garbage week. In March of 2020, Kallie gave birth to their oldest daughter, Olivia Jordan. Kallie is now a proud stay-at-home mom. She loves writing about thrifty living, party planning, and nurturing relationships on her blog. When Kallie bought her small, 980-square foot home she never imagined so much love would grow there. Her family eventually plans to build in the country but for now, enjoy the closeness of small living.
