Graduating from SAIT’s Print and Online Journalism program with a 4.0 GPA in the spring of 2015, I acquired a four month internship with Postmedia immediately following.
Working in weekly newspapers, I wrote for both the Airdrie Echo and the Cochrane Times from May 2015 until August 2015.
Following the end of the internship, I started a full-time time reporting position with Rocky View Publishing, which consists of the Airdrie City View, Rocky View Weekly and Airdrie House and Home magazine.
Though my beat is community reporting, I also cover council and news stories for the municipalities of Crossfield, Irricana and Beiseker.
At the 2015 Better Newspapers Competition Awards of Excellence, my column Remembering what’s real after a loss won the Gordon Scott Memorial Award for Best Feature Column by a Local Writer.
