Our Story

In August 2014 I moved to Lynchburg to begin my Bachelors at Liberty Univeristy. This past December 2020 I finally graduated! Next up: Masters degree.

But after moving 7 times in the nearly 7 years that I have lived in Lynchburg, I am ready to finally find a more permanent residence. I am so excited to announce that I will be buying a home! 

The last step is reaching my down payment and closing costs goal and you can help just by making your normal online purchases through normal brands like Walmart or Target (plus many others). I am using HomeFundIt to make it easy for friends and family to contribute by using an online shopping feature called “UpIt” where a percentage is pledged back to my down payment. So when you shop, make sure you stop by my campaign page first and visit the UpIt Store link under the “Contribute Now” button. 

If you would rather contribute hard cash directly to my goal, you can! Click “Contribute Now” on this page to give online with a debit or credit card. As an added bonus, I will receive $2 for every $1 raised, through a lender matching grant on a portion of your donations. 

I hope you’ll be a part of my home buying journey! I would forever be grateful for any contributions!
