Karen Rocznik

Reporter/Producer/Digital Content Writer

I'm a Canadian/American dual citizen currently living in Denver, Colorado. I am a former radio and television news reporter who now spends her days as a Consumer Expert writing and producing videos for a leading digital news site. I show people how to pay off debt, save for retirement, budget and travel on the cheap.  

 

As an avid traveler, I've explored the U.S., Canada, Australia, Europe, Cuba, Costa Rica and Southeast Asia, where I lived for 5 years. I am a regular Consumer News contributor for 9News KUSA in Denver and have extensive experience as a Consumer Reporter for CTV News, Reporter and Editor for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and Sub-Editor at the Bangkok Post newspaper. I have also worked for marketing and social media advertising firms and have written for Mental Floss, CBC.ca and GOBankingRates.com.
