Kelly Green, senior editor at Mauldin Economics, has been a researcher for as long as she can remember. She was always fascinated with taking things apart and asking hundreds of questions—whether it was a car or a complex math equation. Ms. Green turned to a career researching the lucrative field of high-yielding equities. She fell in love with exploring the ins and outs of income-investing opportunities and sell-side options trades. Over the next few years, Kelly would work as co-editor of several income-focused newsletters, chief researcher, and portfolio analyst. She also wrote an educational series for investors covering topics ranging from making first trades to how to trade options.
