About Me

Based in Calgary, I’ve worked on staff for some of Canada’s largest media companies, including The Canadian Press and St. Joseph Communications. 

My work as a writer and editor has been recognized by the 2018, 2019 and 2020 Alberta Magazine Awards, and I was highly commended by global media organization FIPP in the 2022 Rising Stars in Media Awards.

My fiction has been published in Room, The New Quarterly, in the Tap Press Read 1-3-5 short story anthology and most notably, on Blindman Brewing beer cans.

I’m passionate about mentoring, which includes advising students through the Harry G. Schaefer Mentorship Program at Mount Royal University and internationally trained professionals through the Calgary Region Immigrant Employment Council. 

I have a journalism degree from Mount Royal University and I’m currently pursuing the creative writing certificate from the University of Calgary. 

Outside of work, I like to read, host dinner parties, share multiple plates at one of Calgary’s exceptional restaurants, and go on long walks with my husband, Derek, and our rescue dog, Mala.
