I am award-nominated NCTJ multimedia sports journalist specialising in women's, North American, Paralympic and Olympic sport, with bylines in places like the Independent, the i, Sky Sports, Yahoo!, the Daily Mirror, Metro, the Radio Times, Eurosport and the Yorkshire Post. It seems people like what I do: I was a finalist for NCTJ Sports Journalist of the Year.
My favourite stories are the ones that transcend competition and create conversation. I'm proudest when someone says they've learned something new or thought about something in a different way after reading my work, or when an interviewee tells me I've asked them something they've never been asked before.
I'm relentlessly resourceful and insatiably curious, having travelled to 50+ countries and all seven continents. I'm a Canadian citizen who has also lived in the United States, so I come with a broad knowledge of athletes, sports, fanbases and culture on both sides of the Atlantic. The daughter of a copy editor, I have a both a knack for and genuine love of subbing honed from years of not wanting to disappoint my mother—as well as through writing and editing listings for the BBC.
My portfolio also includes video, radio and podcasting. I am the only woman on the editorial team for Bat Flips and Nerds, Europe's biggest baseball blog and podcast.
I'm digitally savvy, know my way around a CMS and SEO after working on digital nationals like Metro.co.uk and MailOnline, and I'm experienced in cultivating positive relationships even when working remotely.
