About

At Victoria’s downtown air harbour. Photo: D. Ward.

I have served the health, education and government sectors in B.C., Alberta and Yukon Territory as a professional writer and communicator. I have worked with national entities, too, 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 continues to stem 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 where I was sponsored by Alberta Culture. Right now, I am enrolled with the BC Provincial Instructor Diploma online program and will complete before the end of 2020. Terrific learning here, as you will see in some of my blog posts.

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