Freelance Journalist and Money Expert

Not only do I provide freelance writing services to a variety of clients, but I also present workshops and appear on panels. I’ve taught workshops on money management and presented on basic principles of personal finance and investing. I also participate on panels related to journalism, the changing nature of writing on the Internet, and gender issues.
