WORK HISTORY


Present   World News Reporter
HuffPost – New York, NY

See my published articles here.

2016   World News Fellow
HuffPost 
– New York, NY

I pitched and filed daily stories about international issues. Some were short, hard-news reports, while others were long-form explainers and contextualized analysis pieces.

2015 – 2016    Web Intern
The United Nations 
– New York, NY

In both English and French, I wrote news and feature-style articles that illustrated the impact of UN Women’s various humanitarian initiatives around the world. I pitched, researched, fact-checked and edited stories in addition to posting content to the web, which often involved HTML coding. I also covered news events at the UN Headquarters, including the Global Leaders’ Meeting during the General Assembly.

2015    Summer Reporter
The Windsor Star
 (Postmedia) – Windsor, ON

Working in The Star’s fast-paced newsroom, I pitched and filed stories every day for a wide range of beats including city hall, education, crime, court, business, arts, politics and environmental news. I shot and edited photos and videos in addition to live-tweeting breaking news. Several of my articles were published in other Postmedia papers like the National Post, including a story I broke about a Canadian tortured abroad that has since been reported globally.

2015    TV Producer (Intern)
CTV News Canada AM  Scarborough, ON

I worked a variety of shifts in the newsroom, control room and on set to better understand the collaborative efforts behind broadcast news production. I wrote news packs and put them into iNEWS after finding corresponding audio, video and graphics. I also did research, chased stories and conducted pre-interviews. During my first week I pitched and produced a segment that aired on both the morning show and CTV News’ national broadcast.

2014 – 2015    Media Analyst
Privy Council Office 
– OttawaON

Under tight, ongoing deadlines, I condensed a multitude of media content into concise, non-partisan summaries and distributed them to officials in the Prime Minister’s Office. I reviewed print, online and broadcast media reports for coverage of certain federal issues. I also worked on many special projects, including Stephen Harper’s northern tour and foreign government statements on the Middle East and Ukraine.

2014 – 2015    Student Reporter
Capital News, Centretown News – OttawaON

I generated local and national story ideas that were both timely and relevant in addition to conducting research and interviewing sources to write articles under strict deadlines. I also worked with a colleague to create a multimedia story that featured video, audio and photo elements.

2014    TV Reporter (Intern)
CBC News Ottawa 
– OttawaON

I learned a great deal by working closely with seasoned reporters, editors, producers and video journalists. I independently pitched, scripted and reported several stories for television and radio, including one report that aired locally and nationally.
