I recently joined Kelowna Capital News and WestK News as a multimedia journalist in January 2022. With almost 30 years of experience in news reporting and radio broadcasting, I've had the opportunity to work in newsrooms in Castlegar, Vernon, Chilliwack, Abbotsford, Vancouver, and Merritt. I returned to the Okanagan in 2018 and have been loving every minute of it. Additionally, I spent eight years as the assistant manager for Canadian Forces Radio Europe based in the Netherlands and Germany. During that time, I created and managed an internet radio station for several First Nations in the Nicola Valley, which was an incredibly rewarding experience.
