I’m a journalist based in Vancouver, BC. I write about work, education, current affairs and the arts.
I work as an associate producer with a variety of CBC Vancouver current affairs radio programs including On The Coast and The Early Edition. I'm also a freelance writer and audio producer. My print credits include The Tyee, CBC News, CBC Arts online, The Toronto Star, Postmedia News, The Victoria Times-Colonist, and The Georgia Straight.
My series about B.C. restaurant working conditions “Slaves to Tips,” published in The Tyee in 2017, resulted in legislative change: a new WorkSafe regulation intended to prevent employers from being able to require restaurant servers to wear high heels at work. It won the Rafe Mair Award for Excellence in Journalism and was nominated for a Jack Webster Award in the Business, Industry & Economics category as well as the Canadian Journalism Foundation's Landsberg Award for reporting on women’s equality issues in Canada.
I have a Master of Journalism from the University of British Columbia.
