Stephanie Stern, Co-founder and Principal, Stern & Co.

“Trang’s articles are well researched and well written. I have found them useful in my own work as an investment manager.”

Andrew Corn CEO, E5A Integrated Marketing

“Trang is an excellent reporter. She digs and digs and digs until every detail makes sense to her so she can explain the issues to her readers. She asks tough questions and is not afraid to follow up with tougher ones. I also like her writing style where she makes the complex simple.”

Kenneth Rapoza Contributing Editor,

“Trang has the one skill that most journalists today do not have: she has strong instincts. She has a good gut feeling. She’s fast, smart, and not a diva. I brought her onto Forbes in early 2015 and I can tell you that my editors, the market desk editor, all sang her praises and are happy to have her on board. She’s also a great interview: poised and sharp. Glad I met her.”

Charles Biderman, Founder, TrimTabs Investment Research, AdvisorShares TrimTabs Float Shrink ETF (TTFS)

“Trang’s articles are well researched and well written. I have found them useful in my own work as an investment manager.”

“I have had the pleasure of working on some stories with Ky for several years since she was a reporter at Investor’s Business Daily. She has been professional, attentive, and insightful. She seems to have a keen eye for clearly explaining complex concepts and understanding the reader. I am confident that she will continue to achieve great things.”  

Alison Simard, Director of Communications, Council District 5 in City of Los Angeles

“I’ve known Ky for more than a decade and she’s terrific. A former journalist and superb brand marketer, there’s no one better to have on one’s team to tactically target media marketing and marketing strategy. Ky exudes positive energy and always thinks win-win. She is very knowledgeable about the latest trends in digital marketing, SEO and social media. She would make a great addition to any company’s communications department. She is very generous with her time and provided our firm a lot of invaluable tech support and referrals without expecting anything in return.”
