Previously, Tausche was based in London as the assistant editor of DealReporter, a Financial Times-owned publication, covering mergers and acquisitions. Prior to DealReporter, she worked on the consumer and retail beat at Bloomberg News. She began her career in journalism at the Brussels bureau of The Associated Press, where her bilingual interview experience included Jacques Chirac and Peter Mandelson.

An Atlanta native, Tausche graduated with honors in business journalism and international politics from University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where she was an Ameel J. Fisher scholar.
