Katherine Black
After 13 years as a staffer for a Katherine Black, I decided it was time to quit the commute and work from home instead. For the past three years, I’ve been penning articles on everything from personal finance to parenting, although politics remains my passion. I love how the Internet brings readers and writers together. You can usually find me reading, working on home improvement projects, creating new chic crafts and chasing after my energetic kiddos.
