Katie Oelker is a freelance writer specializing in insurance, investments, saving, credit card rewards, budgeting, and overall financial health and well-being. An economics major in college, Katie worked in auditing before going to graduate school to become a high school business education teacher.
Years later she decided to try her hand at entrepreneurship by working as a financial advisor. Realizing that her clients needed more support with budgeting, saving, and paying off debt, she transitioned to financial coaching in order to better serve clients and stay at home with her children. This led her to financial writing, helping Katie educate more people on how to use personal finance knowledge to better their lives.

When not working Katie enjoys spending time with her family, cooking, enjoying the great outdoors, practicing yoga, reading, and planning her family’s next adventure.
