I thrive on getting to the heart of a person’s story and telling it in a way readers have not seen before.
Whether that means:
• immersing myself in an experience to write the story first-hand,
• spending time building trust with sources to get the ‘real deal’ or
• painstakingly researching a topic so I can explain it like I invented it,
I'm willing to go the extra mile and dig deep to create something that inspires, engages and connects people.
I’m a journalist and editor with 14 years’ experience writing for newspapers and magazines on almost every topic from acrobats to zygotes.
I have also appeared on televesion and done some voiceover work.
This portfolio showcases a number of projects I have worked on recently including:
• A lifestyles webpage featuring hundreds of stories written by me
• Amazing Airdrie Women Awards profiles
• Food features
• Global News Morning Show appearances/voice work
• Parenting/family articles
These are only a small sample of how I can inspire, engage and connect people as a writer, editor and personality.

I write, attain photos for, upload and promote stories three times a week on the lifenow page of the airdrielife website. View the hundreds of stories I have created by clicking on the title above.

"My goal is for this location to become a destination, where people can come to enjoy the food they were missing from back East" A local couple is bringing the flavours of Montreal to Airdrie and local residents say the deli is a cut above.
The atmosphere There's something about going to a restaurant and connecting with the owners that elevates the dining experience and ensures you are going to be back. That feeling of connection is immediate when you walk into Ferraro Truly Italian restaurant, located in the Best Western Hotel on Edmonton Trail.
