Amy Blacklock

Amy Blacklock is a freelance writer and personal finance blogger behind the award-winning sites Life Zemplified and Women Who Money. Amy enjoys writing about all things money, especially financial wellness, retirement planning, and financial independence. She holds a B.A. from Oakland University and is an entrepreneur at heart. She’s previously owned two businesses and held positions in accounting, human resources, and project management within the automotive industry. 

In early 2018, Amy left full-time employment to pursue passion projects including creating additional websites and writing a book. Amy’s husband expects to join her in early retirement in 2021 and they hope to travel and explore the United States visiting family and friends along the way.

In addition to helping others improve their financial literacy and build wealth, Amy’s also passionate about fitness and nutrition and promotes overall health and wellness to whoever will listen. When she’s not reading or writing, you’ll likely find her exercising, experimenting in the kitchen, or chasing after her grandchildren.
