I'm the Chief Consumer Advocate at CreditKarma.com. I write regularly about credit cards, student loans and money-saving tips. I also maintain a personal blog, Style Aesthetic.
Originally from South Carolina, I received a B.A. in English and Spanish from Erskine College, a small, liberal arts school in Due West, South Carolina. I went on to receive my M.A. in Spanish Literature at Syracuse University before moving to San Francisco. I began working for See Jane Run, a locally owned women’s athletic apparel brand, where I fell in love with online content development, social media and running. I launched the See Jane Run Blog and managed the brand’s social media channels. During that time, I also volunteered for El Tecolote, a bilingual neighborhood magazine for the Mission District of San Francisco. I contributed articles, assisted with editing and translated several pieces from Spanish to English.
I came to work at Credit Karma in February of 2011. As the Chief Consumer Advocate, I love being the voice of Credit Karma for many top-tier sites and blogs alike, and I especially enjoy writing about common credit myths.
