  • author-icon-linkedIn-circle.png

Dayana Yochim is a senior writer/editor for investor.com. She has been writing (articles, books, podcasts, stirring speeches) about personal finance and investing for more than 25 years, focusing on bringing clarity and the occasional comedic aside to what is often a murky, humorless topic. Dayana has also been a guest expert on “Today,” “Good Morning America,” CNN, NPR and other major media outlets willing to clip a mic to her lapel.

Her areas of expertise include retirement (IRAs, 401(k)s), beginning investing, budgeting, saving, debt, credit, couples’ finances and behavioral economics (your brain on money). Dayana knew she had officially arrived when her work was cited as a source on credit scoring on the “Credit score in the United States” Wikipedia page.

Dayana’s professional priors include stints at NerdWallet, the Motley Fool and Jean Chatzky’s HerMoney.com. She’s also written for numerous publications, including Woman’s Day, Forbes, Newsweek, Jane, and the Associated Press. Dayana has a bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Kansas, just a few miles from where she grew up in Lawrence, Kansas.
