    I am proudly born and raised in The Pas, living until early adulthood on a farm in Carrot Valley. Outside of a few years away for schooling and family reasons I have lived my entire life in the community and, for most of the last 13 years, I have also worked in the newsroom of the Opasquia Times. In total, I have enjoyed eight years as editor of the Opasquia Times and, during that time, have had first-hand views of some of our community’s greatest achievements, and most difficult setbacks. In both situations, though, one common theme constantly emerges; the determination of the residents of The Pas, the R.M. of Kelsey and Opaskwayak Cree Nation to pull together to protect our mutual interests and to strive for a more prosperous tomorrow. Witnessing this spirit is one of the true joys of this job and I look forward to ensuring the Opasquia Times continues to bring to you information on all that is happening in your community as soon as we can. Don’t hesitate to let us know about anything you feel is of interest as well - give me a call, drop me an e-mail or simply stop in to chat. It’s not just my job to hear from you, it’s also my pleasure.

    I initially started freelancing with the Opasquia Times, and signed on full time in August 2015. Since then, I have covered a wide variety of community, sports and other events in and around The Pas and area. I am very honoured to have been hired by the Opasquia Times; I grew up in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories all the way up until when I graduated from high school back in 2013. After graduating I soon moved down here, where a lot of my family lives. I have learned a lot about the area. This region has a lot to offer in terms of warm and friendly people. You may see me at one of the areas’ many different events taking pictures, talking to people or just chilling. Being a journalist has been, thus far, my favorite point in my professional career. You learn something new every week and, even though it takes a lot of hard work, it is always worth it in the end. So, come and stop by the Opasquia Times, we are always happy to have friendly visitors drop by.
