Graduating with a Master of Journalism from the University of British Columbia, I have had the opportunity to work in various areas under the communications umbrella. I began my career as a journalist, primarily writing for three Vancouver area publications: as a reporter and copy editor for The Richmond News, reporter and assistant editor for Megaphone, and reporter and contributing editor for OpenFile (currently on hiatus). I covered a range of topics that I remain passionate about today, namely social justice, education, housing, homelessness, youth issues, and arts and culture.
While continuing to freelance as a journalist, I've since broadened my horizons using the tools I acquired from my degree and experience — writing and editing, blogging, research, social media, search engine optimization (SEO), and creating online content such as videos and presentations.
I love writing, editing, and communicating in all their various forms—from copy writing and copy editing to structural editing to working on in-depth features, and everything in between. I've been lucky enough to work with a diverse range of clients across Canada and around the world. Ultimately, I'm passionate about helping people produce quality content, communicate effectively to reach their intended audiences, and make an impact in their communities.
In my down time, I can be found buried in a book, checking out an exhibit opening, or scouring the city for an impromptu dance party or the hoppiest of hoppy brews.
