We've Walked In Your Shoes

Simplify, Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to working through financial barriers and building long-term financial freedom. In March 2016, Lisa Anne Musch and Tammy Harris founded Simplify with a strong mission to bring financial stability to families and individuals. 

Life has a way of throwing curveballs, and that is no different for Lisa and Tammy. The two have been through their fair share of ups and downs: death of family members, marriage, divorce, child support, eviction, car repossession, poor credit scores, home owning and repairs, renting and car trouble. Many, of which, they have experienced first hand. These experiences have been the foundation for their desire to help others who have gone through similar circumstances.

In time, Tammy and Lisa have overcome curveballs. As a dynamic duo, they now have the knowledge and credentials to help others overcome their own financial hardships.
