Hey! We are Kelan and Brittany Kline, the founders of The Savvy Couple.
We paid off $25,000 of debt in under 5 months by budgeting our money, growing our side hustle, and saving like crazy!
Now we help families learn how to budget their money, organize their life, and unlock the freedom to do more of the things they love!
Kelan graduated from The College at Brockport State University of New York in 2012 completing his Bachelors in Business Administration with minors in finance and marketing.
Fresh out college Kelan started working as an insurance salesman. Quickly realizing that cold calling was not in his wheelhouse, he moved on to pursue his dream to be a police officer. While waiting to join the police force, Kelan was working for UPS and running his side hustle as an Amazon e-commerce store owner.
In 2013, Kelan accepted the job of Jail Deputy for our local county law enforcement. After falling into a depression and wanting a different life for himself, he knew law enforcement was not the right fit for him. Kelan took the leap of faith and left a great state job with wonderful benefits and a pension for a better life.
Kelan worked as an Office Manager at Roberts Wesleyan College while starting our blog as a side hustle. After receiving our first sponsorship on our website for $50, he quit his office manager position.
Kelan was born to be an entrepreneur! It took him many different career paths before knowing that running an online business was his calling. He has been running our blog as the CEO from that point and has not looked back!
Kelan is always on the move. It could be his ADHD or sense of adventure, but Kelan is always busy. He enjoys his weekly recreational sports of floor hockey, basketball, and volleyball. He has a favorite sport for every season! In the winter you can find him hitting the slopes and in the summer wakeboarding on his family boat on our local lake.

Brittany graduated from The College at Brockport State University of New York in 2015 with her Masters Degree in Literacy Education. Brittany is a full-time fourth-grade teacher and part-time Chief of Operations of The Savvy Couple.
Brittany first got hired as Technology Teaching Assistant before landing a third-grade classroom of her own. For the past three years, she has been teaching fourth-grade in a 1:1 Chromebook classroom. In addition to teaching students in the classroom, Brittany was also a dance teacher for 7 years at the dance studio she grew up dancing at.
Brittany has always been the frugal saver out the two. Paying full price is never an option with her. She is always looking for the best deals either online or in store. Brittany loves using her skills as a teacher to help people in the online world as well.
In August of 2018, we welcomed our sweet baby girl Kallie Marie and it has been an amazing journey into parenthood. We are excited to share our family with the online community and help other families with their finances.
