Ruan has been a financial writer for 18 years. The fact that she is always surrounded by people smarter than her is her favourite perk of the job. Her previous stints include editor positions at Financial Mail, Business Day and Finweek. She has also ventured into corporate, public relations and even tried working for herself, but couldn't get to grips with her own management style. She returned to her first love: financial journalism in 2019 by joining the Business Maverick Team as Associate Editor. Ruan dotes over her rescue dogs and talks about them non-stop. She blames them for not being able to own nice things.
