I have a hard time sitting still, so I’m always ready to try something new. Friedrich Nietzsche said that when one has much to put into them, a day has a hundred pockets. And baby, I fill my pockets until they burst.
I’ve tried my hand at being a weekly community newspaper reporter, I’ve freelanced for local publications, and worked in communications. Currently, I work for the Government of Alberta as a Writer/Editor.
While my job keeps me pretty busy, I still find time to volunteer as a swim coach, maintain some freelance writing, and train. I’ve been living and breathing triathlon for the past two years. I completed my first half ironman (Calgary 70.3) in July 2013, and represented Canada at the World Champs here in Edmonton in 2014.
I graduated from the SAIT Journalism Arts diploma program in 2010. Prior to attending SAIT, I completed my Bachelor of Arts degree in English at the University of Alberta in 2007.
I have a keen eye for detail and enjoy researching every aspect of every story I tackle. My curiosity to constantly learn more makes my writing interesting and compelling, and it also allows me to tackle subjects in which I’m not as knowledgeable and deliver quality results. I am known as a stickler for grammar, and my CP Style book is never far from reach.
When I’m not writing, I’m moving. It might be swimming one day and yoga the next, or trying something new like kickboxing or Capoeira. I love to run (obviously). It’s like breathing. I also love drinking tea, reading, watching hours of spoken word, going exploring with friends, and taking road trips to nowhere and everywhere.
