I have served the health, education, government and technology sectors in B.C., Alberta, Ontario and Yukon Territory as a professional writer and communicator. I have worked with national entities such as the Canadian Institutes for Health Research and Habitat for Humanity. As for international experience, managing media relations for CTV, host broadcaster of the Calgary Winter Olympics, remains a career highlight.

While my education stems from various sources, my formal studies include business administration with the University of Alberta and Service Canada as well as completing the Banff Centre’s renowned magazine publishing program through the support of Alberta Culture. A lifelong learner, I graduated from VCC’s Provincial Instructor Diploma program in 2021 and found this learning deeply satisfying.

I like knowing I can see my house from here but only if I’m in a seaplane. Photo: J. Lehmann, 2016.
