Letter from the Senior Digital Editor: Introducing Alexandra

The world changes on us every day, but we have the power to make changes, too.

Last week, along with 13,000 other students, I celebrated my graduation from New York University. I started working towards an MBA at Stern’s Langone part-time program in another lifetime — February 2020, just weeks before COVID-19 changed the world we knew. 

Graduation officially marks the end of a long journey that led me here, to my new role as senior digital editor at Kiplinger. Here, I'm managing the online team to bring you all the insights you need on a daily basis, bridging my background in journalism with my knowledge in finance. Since I'm asking you, as our reader, to trust me with your personal finance advice, I wanted to tell you a little about myself and why I care so much about helping you make smart financial decisions.
