I became the publisher of the Chemainus Valley Courier in 2021. I joined Black Press Media in 1995 as a sales representative at the Nanaimo News Bulletin and became sales manager at the newspaper in 2008. In 2017 I was appointed publisher of the Nanaimo News Bulletin. I am very proud to be one of the many important contributors to the newspaper’s successes and our vital role in the communities we serve. I'm also an active volunteer with St John Ambulance in Nanaimo (since 2004 and admitted as a member to the Order of St John in 2021).
