Claire Young is a freelance reporter and writes about lots of things, but specializes in travel, health and money. A graduate of Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism, her work has appeared on InsideHook, Health, Marie Claire, WGN newscasts, CBS MoneyWatch and more. Claire splits her time between Chicago and Los Angeles, which requires equal parts preparation, insanity, and finely-tuned travel acumen.
