Jamie Gonzalez-Garcia's main role is content editor for CreditCards.com's international sites for the U.K. and Canada, but she also has a hand in a few aspects of the U.S. site as well. She says her relationship with credit cards has always been low-key and until very recently, she had only one credit card to her name – the same one she got when she opened her first bank account at 18. After three years with CreditCards.com, though, she improved that relationship (and her credit score).
Gonzalez-Garcia began her journalism career at Texas State University-San Marcos. After graduating, she worked as a page designer and copy editor for E.W. Scripps in Corpus Christi, Texas, for a few years before moving to Austin to join the Creditcards.com team.
