Experience

Meredith Mangan has 15 years of experience in finance, media, and financial markets, including five years as the managing editor of Money Crashers, where she oversaw all personal finance content. She joined The Balance in 2020 and is currently the senior insurance editor. Prior to her editing career, Meredith was a licensed financial advisor and a licensed insurance agent in accident and health, variable, and life contracts.

Meredith pivoted from finance to journalism when she founded Mariposa Spirit, a bimonthly print publication on arts and culture; she single-handedly grew distribution from zero to 10,000 in two years. She also has a penchant for options, and spent four years trading her own account full-time before joining The Balance.
