Courtney Mihocik is an editor at Bankrate Credit Cards and specializing in credit card news and personal finance advice. Previously, she led insurance content at and worked as the loans editor at The Simple Dollar, where she produced daily personal finance articles from founder Trent Hamm in addition to student loan, personal loan, business loan and bad credit loan articles. Before entering the digital publication space, Courtney worked in hyper-local print journalism, covering arts, culture, food, news and more for Charlotte, North Carolina, alt-weekly newspapers.

Courtney is passionate about creating a space where people can learn more about managing their personal finances, specifically helping Gen-Z and millennials invest and prepare for retirement. She believes that public education fails to teach the essentials of personal finance to students and wants to make up for it in her editorial work.

We all make mistakes with our finances, and it’s not shameful to ask for advice or help to get your life in order financially. With credit cards, it’s especially important to be wary of racking up a high balance and relying on transfers to avoid interest. As an editor, I want Gen Z and millennials to have the same—if not better—financial advice than generations before.
