1988

1988

I began my career shooting the rapids of the Ottawa River—with a video camera, that is. As a videographer for Wilderness Tours Whitewater Rafting I laughed a lot and slept little as I worked hard to create video memories of crashing sprays of whitewater.

For twelve years I worked as a producer for Rogers TV in Ottawa with some of the brightest and most talented people I have ever met.

I am now a freelance writer and a certified copy editor. I write video scripts, speeches, web content and promotional materials. I also write short stories, and my work has been published in DESCANT magazine and in a Writer’s Digest short story collection. 

 “Scripts are always on time and rarely go to second draft, as our clients are always happy.” —Andrés del Castillo, r+d creative inc.

I was shortlisted in a Writers’ Union of Canada Short Prose Competition, and twice won the Canadian Authors Association National Capital Writing Contest.

“This year’s contest attracted close to 19,000 entries. Your success in the face of such formidable competition speaks highly of your writing talent, and should be a source of great pride as you continue in your writing career.” —Kristen D. Godsey, Editor, Writer’s Digest

I have been married to my always entertaining husband, Don, since 1989. I am the mother of two young adults who are so amazing I wonder how it is that I helped to create them. I love sports, and my favourite time of year is when I give my television remote a good workout by watching baseball, hockey, tennis, and curling all at the same time.

I have been a member of Trinity United Church in Ottawa for more than twenty years. It is place of open minds, open hearts, inspiration and goosebump moments.
