I’m a multimedia journalist with expertise in print and digital storytelling, magazine editing and social media.
I’ve worked for many years as a freelance writer for magazines and newspapers. In 2012, I was awarded the George Cadogan Memorial Outstanding Columnist Award from the Canadian Community Newspapers Association.
In 2015, I earned a master’s degree in journalism at the University of King’s College in Halifax, NS, and launched LifeAfterGluten.ca, Canada’s go-to resource for gluten free living.
