Karen Belz is an Associate Commerce Editor for Bustle, helping connect readers to the best products that’ll make a world of difference in their everyday lives. She tries to find products that others will actually use at prices they can afford.

Karen has been a professional writer for over a decade, getting her start by helping launch the website HelloGiggles back in 2011. She was previously a writer on Bustle’s Lifestyle team and has also contributed to sites such as LittleThings, Scary Mommy, and Romper. She graduated from Millersville University of Pennsylvania, majoring in Broadcasting with a minor in Print Media Studies, and was heavily involved with the campus radio station, WIXQ.

She’s also the mom of a 4-year-old girl, thus Disney+ is constantly on in the background while she works. You can follow Karen on Twitter at @KarenEBelz.
