Magazine Work


In 1993 I began my career in Toronto at FLARE, Canada's leading fashion magazine. I spent the next six years working as a staff writer, editor, researcher and copy editor for various Toronto-based national magazines, including Chatelaine, Elm Street, Maclean's and Owl Canadian Family.

In September of 1999, I decided to pursue freelance writing and editing full-time, soon becoming the part-time managing editor of Gardening Life and a senior contributing editor at Canadian Living.

That same year I began an ongoing partnership with the Toronto office of Redwood Custom Communications (now Totem Brand Stories). For Redwood/Totem, I've worked as a writer and copy editor on publications produced for Acura, CAA, Geico, Glidden, Mazda, RBC, Scotts, Sea Island, Sobeys, Termidor and The Home Depot.

In October of 2000, I returned home to Halifax. Since then I've written for Canadian Living, Chatelaine, Look Good Feel Better, The Health Journal, The Globe and Mail and the National Post, among many other leading national publications. Since January of 2001, I've been a freelance contributing editor with Halifax-based Progress Media Group, which publishes Progress, an Atlantic Canadian business magazine, as well as several custom publications.
