About

Hi there! My name is Áine Cain. Áine is pronounced “Awnyah” — she’s the Irish goddess of wealth, the summer sun, and cattle, among other things. So, my names don’t rhyme.

I graduated from the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia in May 2016 with a degree in history. Now, I live in the New York metro area and work as a Strategy reporter at Business Insider. I write about business strategy, career advice, and people with cool jobs (and history, sometimes).

I previously served as editor-in-chief of The Flat Hat, William and Mary’s weekly student newspaper. I also freelanced for the Williamsburg-Yorktown Daily and USA TODAY College.

My work has also appeared in Politico PlaybookIndependentInc, the London Evening Standard, and the Bronxville Daily Voice.

I love history, tea, penguins, mysteries my family, and my two dogs.
