Jess Feldman is an associate editor for The Balance. Since joining the financial space, she's developed an interest in budgeting and investing, and has also found the joys of embracing a financially smart lifestyle.

Jess has worked in the digital media landscape for over five years practicing storytelling, content creation, and editing in all its forms, covering a variety of subjects. She began her career in the traditional magazine industry, writing and editing for city-regional publications before pivoting and taking on roles in the marketing and social media space. Upon graduating from one of the top-10 journalism schools in the country, Jess joined Northern Virginia Magazine where she wrote and edited for both print and digital mediums, ran social media campaigns, and served as the resident lifestyle writer for a year and a half. Her work has been published by The Washington Post, The Baltimore Sun, and USA Today. She joined The Balance in 2020.

Jess grew up just outside of Boston and now resides in the East Village of Manhattan.

When she's not editing personal finance content, you'll find her reading the latest pop culture news, watching recently released films, or talking about Boston sports.
