Paris Achen


Paris Achen is the staff writer for Rent Responsibly, covering everything from feature stories to case studies, guides, and more. Before joining Rent Responsibly, Paris worked as a journalist at several newspapers in the U.S. and Turkey. Her background reporting on housing issues for the Portland Tribune in Oregon inspired her to want to write more about the short-term rental industry. She is especially interested in how STRs have served as an economic vehicle for homeowners, like her, who would have struggled to own a home without the option of renting out part of it. Paris enjoys listening to people’s stories and writing content that leaves her readers feeling more connected to their fellow humans.
