Cassidy Horton is a freelance writer covering pet and home insurance. She holds an MBA and a bachelor's in public relations from Georgia Southern University, and she's worked with top finance brands like Forbes Advisor and Consumer Affairs. Cassidy first became interested in personal finance after paying off $18,000 in debt within 10 months of graduating college. She later went on to triple her salary in two years by ditching her 8-to-5 job to write for a living. Today, Cassidy is the founder of Money Hungry Freelancers, a platform dedicated to helping other freelancers build a strong financial foundation. In her spare time, she enjoys hiking around the Pacific Northwest and hunting down the best fried chicken in town. She is based in Seattle, Washington.
