Angelica Leicht is an insurance editor on the Bankrate team. She is truly passionate about helping readers make well-informed decisions for their wallets, whether the goal is to find the right comprehensive auto policy or the best life insurance policy for their needs.

Outside of work, Angelica likes to spend her time cranking old records on a vintage phonograph, discussing how blockchain technology might revolutionize the personal finance space, or binging the latest episode of a true crime podcast.

Making the right money decisions can be tough, which is why it's important to me to help make financial content more informative, accurate, and accessible.
