About/Meet Your Bloggers

College Life Made Easy was founded a blogging duo: Charlie & Jen!

They are both passionate bargain shoppers and all about being smart with money!

Charlotte “Charlie” Lake is the author of the book, 175+ Things to Do Before You Graduate College published by the Simon & Schuster imprint, Adams Media.

She attended the Ashland Institute of Massage and graduated in 2015. She is a licensed massage therapist and a stretching enthusiast. In her spare time, you can find her hiking, reading, brainstorming ideas, and befriending old dogs.

Jen is Sudoku lover and is quite fond of all things sparkly and shiny. She is also a proud, terrible cook; her favorite day of the week is Sunday because it’s “fend for yourself” day for her family.
