Personal Finance Writer

Hi there! I'm Alene.

I'm an award-winning writer and journalist passionate about crafting compelling, relatable stories on business and money.

I specialize in credit cards, award travel, mortgages, loans, and other personal finance topics.

Clips have appeared on Business Insider, USA Today, SoFi, Bankrate, LendEDU and others. You can see my portfolio here.

Five (yes, FIVE!) couch ninjas/fort builders now call me mom. I currently reside in the Southwest among the most iconic landscapes in the U.S. I love a good board game as much as I love team sports and the outdoors.

Contact I'd love to write your story.
