Aundraya Ruse

I’m a reporter at, and it’s my first job with a desk and my own phone line extension number — though no one calls me on it. I hold a B.A. in English from Texas Tech University, and I’ve got the student loan debt to prove it. Writing for is giving me the opportunity to extend my own knowledge on personal finance while presenting that information in a relevant way to you, the reader. When I’m not marveling at the fact that I’m officially a journalist (i.e., I’ve got a “big girl” job), I’m combatting my perpetual short-story writer’s block and indulging in my guilty pleasure: performing magic tricks. Aundraya Ruse was a reporter for from 2011-2012.
