I have been writing for a decade, first as a journalist and then as a communications consultant for a series of governmental organizations. I am obsessed with telling the truth.
My first book Wide Open is a memoir about faith and loss of faith, about sexual assault and about the astounding human capacity to heal.
I earned a journalism degree and a public-relations certificate from the University of Regina.
Wide Open won the 2017 John V. Hicks prize, awarded by the Saskatchewan Writers’ Guild to an unpublished manuscript. I also earned a Director’s Bursary from Sage Hill Writing Experience.
After it was published, Wide Open won a 2020 Saskatchewan Book award and a Columbia Basin Trust artist grant.
