I’m a digital journalist based in Vancouver, Canada with CBC News, where I’ve worked for 10 years in radio, television and the web.
I love making sense of things. My specialty is science and environment stories, from E. coli and isotopes to carbon offsets and killer whales. As a general assignment news reporter, I’ve also covered kidnappings, earthquakes, and won a RTDNA award for live reports from the Stanley Cup Riot.
A enjoy playing and working online. At CBC, I’ve been involved in digital strategy and social media training. I’m interested in exploring how to to reach new audiences, and what interactive media can offer for storytelling.
At home, one of my favourite things to do is explore the outdoors with my husband and our adventuresome young daughter.
Before I became a storyteller, I thought I was going to be a scientist. I graduated from UBC with an Honours Degree in Biology after pipetting stickleback DNA, counting kelp, and watching fish mating dances.
I’m still curious about things that many journalists hate, including animal carcasses and math.
