I'm the senior content director at LendingTree, where I steer a team of writers and editors to produce hundreds of pieces of content each month across six LT-owned domains (;;;;; and I came to LendingTree through the acquisition of MagnifyMoney in 2017, where I was also executive editor. I manage a team of 20+ writers and editors as well as a network of 50+ freelancer writers and editors. As a team, we run the content pipeline for LendingTree — from working closely with our in-house SEO team as well as our staff writers and editors to develop story ideas, assigning stories, editing and fact checking all content, formatting content, and publishing content on all domains. We work closely with several departments including our data and studies team, media and outreach, product, and marketing. Previously, I worked as both an editor and reporter on the personal finance beat at Business Insider and Yahoo Finance. At Business Insider, I tripled the audience for personal finance content. At Yahoo, in addition to reporting several stories per week, I hosted two weekly web series, "Money Minute" and "The Payoff," and appeared as an expert guest on numerous media outlets, including Good Morning America, ABC World News Tonight, CBS This Morning, NY1, and Pix 11. In mid-2015, I launched the popular career and finance podcast Brown Ambition, which soared to the top 10 for career podcasts, made the top 30 in overall business podcasts and was featured in iTunes' "New and Noteworthy" section in the first few months on air. Brown Ambition still runs every Wednesday.
