Expertise

Medora has more than 25 years of experience reporting, writing and editing mostly as a finance and economics journalist around the globe. She has covered every aspect of finance and economics, including the fall of Barings Bank in 1995 and Europe's transition to Economic and Monetary Union and the birth of the euro.

She has worked at such international stalwarts as Reuters and Forbes.com as well as startups that grew up like theStreet.com. Always eager to cover the big story, she moved to San Francisco in the 1990s from London to cover the tech boom (and then, bust) as an original member of theStreet.com's West coast bureau. There, she relayed news about Silicon Valley venture capitalists, the latest gadgets and balance sheets of tech companies and broke news on software giants like SAP.

Medora also has covered international company news at MT Newswires and personal finance topics for The Balance and various business sites including Dow Jones Investor's Business Daily.
