From rural Prince Edward Island, my love for journalism began in grade nine. My aunt, also a journalist, would tell me stories of her experiences while producing in Washington, D.C., and I was sold. I went on to graduate with distinction from St. Thomas University and immediately began an internship at CBC Fredericton. I reported for both television and radio that summer.
Soon after, Global News took me on as a Video Journalist, first in Moncton and then in Fredericton. I've had the opportunity to do a series on the Idle No More movement in the Maritimes, skydived and lobster fished. I covered some of the toughest stories to have hit this region, including the deaths of two young boys, strangled by a python. In October of 2013, I found myself in the middle of angry anti-shale gas protests in Rexton, New Brunswick. I've received four Atlantic Journalism Awards for my work.
I started working for CTV News in Jan. 2016, first in Fredericton and have recently moved to Halifax, Nova Scotia. I'm working towards improving the strength of my work, and its value to the public.
