The Broke-Ass Bride Editorial and Accounts Manager ChristenChristen Moynihan is the Editorial and Account Manager / Unicorn Wrangler for The Broke-Ass Bride.

After joining Team Broke-Ass in 2012 as the Real Wedding Contributor, she’s worked her way up to the almost-highest rung (fine by her, as she’s totes afraid of heights) and now oversees the vast majority of BAB operations. When she’s not thinking of fun, pretty and brilliant new ideas for the blog, Christen can probably be found teaching other bloggers about affiliate marketing over on Bourbon & Sparkle, swimming in the nearest body of water, whipping up some sort of delicious and woefully cheese-free something-or-other in the kitchen or sipping on a lovely bourbon or glass of bubbly on a patio. She lives in Denton, Texas, with her boyfriend and ever-expanding brood of cats. She’s also really good at high-fives.
