Professor Nathalie Martin Gains National Reputation as Blogger

Nathalie Martin

Professor Nathalie Martin has found her place in the blogosphere at Credit Slips, where, since 2007 she has been sharing her expertise on credit, bankruptcy, consumer law and predatory lending practices. Beginning in July 2010, she has been one of the Internet site’s regular bloggers. Credit Slips was created in 2006 as a platform for academic discussions of all things that involve credit, bankruptcy, consumers and financial institutions.

Martin’s regular musings have involved Facebook, charitable giving, foreclosures, many facets of payday loans, including a case recently argued before the New Mexico Court of Appeals, and bank card surcharges.

Her blogs have attracted national attention, which has resulted in calls from reporters around the country and a growing reputation as an expert in her scholarship fields.

“I appreciate participating in the nation’s discussion of debt and credit, and also have appreciated being able to blog about some New Mexico consumers. It has helped put New Mexico in the spotlight on issues of critical importance nationally,” said Martin.
