Carolyn Kimball is the managing editor at Reink Media Group and lead editor for the websites StockBrokers.com and investor.com. Carolyn has more than 20 years of writing and editing experience at major media outlets including NerdWallet, the Los Angeles Times and the San Jose Mercury News.

She specializes in coverage of personal financial products and services, wielding her editing skills to clarify complex (some might say befuddling) topics to help consumers make informed decisions about their money. Carolyn believes strongly that financial education has the power to open doors for all Americans and change our lives for the better — whether that means planning for a happy retirement, paying off a debt, or establishing a budget that allows you to live a more stress-free life.

Carolyn is an honors graduate of Arizona State University and holds degrees in journalism and political science. She enjoys birdwatching, reading sci-fi novels (“speculative fiction,” if she’s feeling hoity-toity) and snapping photos of the black bears that regularly trudge through her yard in New England.
