Karla Davisio was born and raised in Boston, Massachusetts, and graduated from Brown University with a degree in economics. Karla became interested in personal finance at a very young age. She worked at an investment fund for a brief period of time in Chicago, Illinois, a personal finance and lifestyle website dedicated to helping its readers better manage their finances. The topics covered include saving more money, investing for retirement, starting an emergency fund, and reducing credit card debt. Publishing is now her full-time career, which she enjoys because of the empowerment and value it provides for people in their everyday lives.
