My relationship with credit cards has always been low-key and until very recently, I had only one credit card to my name – the same one I got when I opened my first bank account at 18. After three years with CreditCards.com, though, I’ve improved that relationship (and my credit score).

I began my journalism career at Texas State University-San Marcos. After graduating, I worked as a page designer and copy editor for E.W. Scripps in Corpus Christi for a few years before moving to Austin to join the Creditcards.Com team. My main role is content editor for our international sites for the UK and Canada, but I also have a hand in a few aspects of our U.S. site as well.
