Born and raised in Cambridge, Ont., I grew up in a multicultural community that led me to appreciate people’s stories from all over the world. I have always taken an interest in telling these stories through my exceptional written and verbal communication skills.
After graduating from Carleton University in June 2012 with a double major in journalism and human rights, I kicked off my career with a Farm Radio International internship in Ghana. When I returned to Canada, I completed a four-month internship with the Ottawa Citizen as a city desk reporter.
I now work as a journalist for iPolitics in Ottawa, covering foreign affairs, defence and immigration, as well as the day-to-day happenings on Parliament Hill. Working for iPolitics, an independent political news website, I have had the opportunity to explore the fast-paced world of Canadian politics through innovative, online storytelling. I am also the voice behind The Dispatch, a daily iPolitics brief covering Canadian foreign policy developments. Finally, I represent iPolitics as a regular panelist on CTV News Channel.
Aside from my journalistic pursuits, I enjoy walking my dog Murphy, spending time with my friends and family, and, of course, keeping up with politics at home and abroad.
