Lisa joined the staff of Kiplinger.com on a contract basis in January 2017 after serving 19 years as an editor in the Money section of USA TODAY. She is happily frugal and saving obsessed and relishes any role in helping others achieve their retirement dreams. Now, to the obvious question: Is she or isn't she related to THE Kiplinger family? The answer is maybe, but any possible common relative would be way, way in the past. She is probably similarly related to Kevin Bacon.
