Welcome to my website! This site functions as my journalism portfolio and contains samples of my multimedia work.
Over the past seven years I have accumulated domestic and international journalism and communications experience at: CBC, CNN, MaRS Discovery District, 680 News, iPolitics, International University Sports Federation, U Sports, Ontario Out of Doors magazine, AM980, and 104.7 Heart FM.
In April 2018, I graduated from Carleton University with my Masters of Journalism specializing in Print and Data Journalism. I also hold a Bachelor of Arts in History from Western University and Broadcast Journalism diploma from Fanshawe College.
From September 2015 to April 2016 while enrolled in full-time studies I worked as a research assistant for two different professors at Huron University College. I created a digital history website for Associate History Professor Nina Reid-Maroney's first year history class (1802E). I was also hired by History Professor Dr. Tom Peace to create a digital exhibit for the Museum of Archaeology. In addition to my research assistant positions, I also worked as a news anchor and reporter for AM980.
As a reporter for AM980, I traveled independently and reported on breaking news situations. In October 2015, I reported on a range of topics including the federal election for Rogers TV, the London mother who stabbed her six year old daughter, the procession for a Canadian Forces veteran killed while fighting alongside the Kurdish forces in Syria and the bust of a dog fighting ring in Tillbury. As a news anchor, I was responsible for writing copy for the web, voicing wraparounds and teases, compiling international, national and local news for the news wheel, delivering newscasts on-air, monitoring AM980 social media accounts, creating traffic reports, and writing the Daily-On-Demand e-newsletter.
In October, I was the recipient of the Huron University College – Sarah Ann Martin Memorial Award and my previous employer Ontario Out of Doors magazine won the Canadian Online Publishing Award for Best Digital Publication. I also received the Robert and Alyce Martin Entrance Scholarship from Carleton University.
