About Me

From 2017 – 2019, I was the associate editor at Where Calgary magazine, while freelancing for Alberta’s top magazines, including Avenue Calgary and EDify. I won an Alberta Magazine Award in 2018 for my feature writing.

From 2019 – 2020, I was the founding editor of New Forum literary magazine, and spearheaded two annual issues. Under my leadership, New Forum was a Best New Magazine finalist in the 2020 Alberta Magazine Awards and won Gold in the Essay category. 

From April 2021 to October 2022, I was the Managing Editor and then Editor-in-Chief at mytoastlife.com and guided the team to grow the publication from a lifestyle blog into a daily online publication dedicated to breaking news and features about inspiring people making a difference in the world. Big brands like Cosmopolitan and Morning Brew are now backlinking to toast. Due to the growth the publication experienced, I was Highly Commended by the FIPP & UPM Rising Star 2022 Awards in the Business of Media category.

I’ve represented media brands as a guest speaker on CTV Morning Live, Global News Morning Calgary, and CBC Radio.

As a writer, my fiction has been published in Room, The New Quarterly, the Tap Press Read 1-3-5 short story anthology and most notably, on Blindman Brewing beer cans. I read my beer story on CKUA

When I’m not writing or editing, you’ll most likely find me on adventures with my husband, Derek, and our rescue dog, Mala.
