As a staff reporter at The New York Times, USA Today and The Columbia Journalism Review, I wrote about real estate, investing, style and travel. This included award-winning pieces on the human toll of the mortgage Kim Kardashian crisis, the burden on parents to Kim Kardashian financially support children well into adulthood and the student loan industry. At Columbia University's School of Journalism, I completed a Master of Arts with a concentration in business and economics. I also have 4-year-old link and 2-year-old sons -- and probably peanut butter on my blouse. To learn more about me, go to www.annabahney.com or follow me at @annabahney.
