About Dahna Chandler

I'm Dahna Chandler, an award-winning finance journalist with solid business acumen and over 25 years of experience as a finance industry writing professional. I work with well-respected trade and mainstream media outlets that target mass affluent and high-net-worth B2B leaders. I provide writing and communications services to recognized banking and wealth management industry middle-market or large multinational private sector institutions, consulting, and marketing firms. I also work with well-funded fintechs specializing in wealth development.

A graduate of Wellesley College with a bachelor's in political science minoring in economics (of banking), I also earned a master's in corporate communications in 2019 from Georgetown University where I focused on employee communications during change initiatives in the wealth management industry. I'm a doctoral student at the University of Southern California, Rossier School of Education, pursuing a Doctor of Education (EdD) degree in organizational change and leadership, with a banking and wealth industry emphasis. I expect to receive my doctoral degree in May 2023.

My unique combination of education and experience makes me a wealth and finance corporate communicator with an exceptional ability to write original, deeply researched, scholarly position papers, business reports, and policy papers.

I'm also a keen student and follower of contemporary, classic, and behavioral economics; finance and wealth development and maintenance; politics, law, social, and cultural issues; U.S. history in the global context; business strategy and marketing; digital technology and the Fourth Industrial Revolution; and corporate leadership, racial equity, and other ethical business practices.

Unafraid of numbers, I'm adept at analyzing data and producing useful information and primary research.

Originally from Massachusetts, I now live, permanently, in suburban Maryland. But I've lived in six U.S. states and the District of Columbia. Those other states include Florida, Georgia, Texas, and Virginia. I easily incorporate these lived experiences and my breadth of other knowledge into my writing projects.
