A Vancouver native, Charlotte recently graduated from Simon Fraser University, where she majored in English and Humanities.

Charlotte started working for the Investing News Network in the spring of 2012 and now specializes in writing about diamonds, precious metals, base metals and graphite. She received her Certificate in Editing in 2013.
