I'm a freelance journalist, writer and editor currently based in Ottawa, Ontario. I have my BSc in Kinesiology and my BA in Journalism. My work has appeared in Maclean's Magazine, the Calgary Herald, Airdrie City View and more. My Calgary Journal story "Mind of a Murderer," was a 2019 Finalist for the Emerge Media award in the Feature Story category.

I'm currently an editor and reporter at CityNews Ottawa, covering topics ranging from crime to education. 

I love writing about social issues, especially if they have a health angle!
