Dr. C Marie, author of Wake Up to the Dream of a Debt-Free Life, has been a dedicated life-long learner and highly effective teacher, professor, and dean in the field of education. For most of her fulfilling career, however, she struggled with money management and, as a result, carried a massive amount of debt.
C Marie experienced life-enriching outcomes along the way. These meaningful experiences served as the foundation for the creation of Puzzle Pieces to Pathway, LLC. The culmination of life experiences in the areas of Hope, Faith & Love, Relationship, Purpose, Finances, and Organization impacted her personal faith journey and led to a deeper understanding of the term, debt free.
C Marie finds great joy sharing this part of her journey with others.
In December 2016, within a month of becoming free of debt, C Marie made the decision to form Puzzle Pieces to Pathway, LLC (PP2P) with a mission to encourage a community of budgeters.

"Isn't it amazing how some authors capture your attention and keep you wanting to read just a little more before you put the book down? Dr. C Marie had years of debt struggle and then she successfully became debt free. Now she is willing to share her story with others and she so capably does so. Her words of wisdom continue beyond being debt free and in her words, utilize our "talents to pursue our purpose and support one another (pg 76)."

"Loved this book on so many levels! I loved the author's special memories and could identify with so many of them. Not only does the book help you learn to live debt-free, but it also helps you to live a purpose-filled life. I recommend this book highly!"
- Carolyn Blount
"It is one thing to read a book about how to get out of debt - it is quite another thing to read a book by an author who shares her “journey to debt-free living” in such an inspiring and empowering way. You will be encouraged by C Marie’s stories and strategies. Her words are gracious and genuine. Possibly, if you’re like me, you will be challenged to be a better manager of time, talents and gifts as well as money. Well done C Marie! I highly recommend!"
- R. Lantz
"I really enjoyed this book and how it tied together the important "puzzle pieces" we each have in life between finances, faith, and relationships. With each page the book got better and better. It is such a heartwarming and inspiring story that enables others to see how true behavior change can make a difference between being in tremendous debt to becoming completely debt free."
