Coming from Surrey, B.C., I was apprehensive of how my first week would go in the island’s oceanside town of Sooke.
I was happy to learn the community is vibrant, active and friendly — the perfect stomping ground for a junior reporter.
I’ve also learned from my colleagues that this diverse town never lacks for news, and has its fair share of eccentrics and notable characters. With that in mind, I look forward to covering the events and issues that may arise in this town of 12,000.
In the past, I worked as a reporter in northern Alberta for a rural community newspaper called the Lac La Biche Post. And have had articles published in my hometown community newspaper, the Surrey Leader.
I received my Bachelor of Arts in philosophy from the University of British Columbia in 2010, and completed a journalism certificate from Langara in 2011.
