I first began writing, somewhat seriously when I was in grade 6, the result of a research project which introduced me to interviewing and reporting. My teacher was a creative type, and encouraged us to write poetry, journals and music. I was (and still am) happiest when writing, editing and researching.
Ryerson University’s Journalism program provided me a place to develop a wide range of skills – from interviewing to fact checking. As a freelance writer, I’ve worked in a variety of industries – from education to arts to financial and service industries.
I do have a passion for the arts – visual, music, written and performing– which has resulted in extensive experience within the non-profit sector.
Grant proposals, web content and writing for social media platforms are all part of my current portfolio.
I am a Board Member of Oakville Improv, a life member of the Ontario Federation of Home and School Associations and a member of the Oakville Arts Council.
