Laura Mohammad

A second-generation wordsmith, Laura Mohammad fell in love with The Craft in fifth grade while taking edits from her father in her native town of Tallahassee, Fla. After receiving her degree in English with honors from Florida State University, Laura went on to manage business and general news desks of daily newspapers in Florida. She broke into the online content field five years ago, writing and editing about human resources, geopolitics, personal finance and investing. Today, Laura serves as web editor of CreditCardGuide.com. She shares her Northwest Austin home with her UT-Austin professor-husband, their rather noisy 17-year-old and 15-year-old boys, and a scoundrel collie named Cuervo.
