LouAnn Lofton

LouAnn Lofton has been with The Motley Fool since January 2000, first as a writer, later as the managing editor for all of the Fool's online content, and currently as a contributing writer. She's the author of the Fool's "Warren Buffett Invests Like a Girl: And Why You Should, Too," published in June 2011. As a largely self-taught investor and a believer in taking the long-term view, her interests and portfolio lean towards owning stocks she can easily understand and then holding onto them forever. When she's not curled up reading somewhere, she's gallavanting around New Orleans in search of the perfect po-boy. You can follow her on Twitter via @LouAnnLofton.
