Kaitlyn Lyders

Client + Community Relations

"Working with a team that shares the same vision, passion, and commitment to share financial education for the benefit of others." Mom of three, and wife of a farmer, Kaitlyn resides in a small town in North Central Montana. But that didn't stop her from seeking financial education and experience from all over the US with the help of Adam and The Shred Method™. Starting her professional career as a family and consumer sciences teacher, Kaitlyn was well aware that financial education is a discipline many students miss out on in high school. Following the lead of Adam Carroll, she began promoting his book and workbook series Mastery of Money for Students. Soon it would become apparent that financial education for adults was just as imperative. Kaitlyn joined The Shred Method™ team to assist members in rapidly reducing their consumer debt and becoming financially free.


Most people can be completely out of debt (mortgage included) within 3-5 years.
