Linda Doell Writer
I've been a journalist for more than 22 years and worked in newspapers as a reporter and editor before making the jump to online news. I have previously written for AOL and American Express' Open Forum, among other sites.
I have a passion for saving and writing stories that help people get the most out of their money. There is such a need for folks to learn how to be financially savvy and I'm grateful for the opportunity to write for you.
In my spare time, I enjoy visual storytelling through photography and spending time with my husband and our dog.
