Carrie McKeegan is an energetic business leader, a mom, and a global citizen who also happens to love to write. She is the co-founder and CEO of Greenback Expat Tax Services, a company she started over a decade ago with her husband David, after they recognized a serious lack in the market for tax services specifically designed for American expats. With an undergraduate degree in Political Science and an International Master in Business degree, Carrie spent the first decade of her professional career working in financial institutions around the world, like American Express and Barclaycard.

Greenback Expat Tax Services has been named to the Inc. 5000 list and featured in countless publications, like the Wall Street Journal, Forbes, CNBC, and Bloomberg. When Carrie realized that she was having more conversations and getting more press requests to share how she and David successfully manage a 100 percent remote team of over 40 people, she took the big scary leap to pitch herself to a major business site as a Contributor. On her first try, she landed a column on Inc., and the rest—as they say—is history.
