TV & Radio Reporter/Editor, Associate Producer (current affairs radio shows)

CBC/Radio Canada - CBC News Saskatchewan

During my fall 2011 semester at University of Regina, I was asked to continue working at CBC News Saskatchewan as a casual reporter while completing my journalism degree. This position came after I completed a four-month full-time internship at CBC News Saskatchewan as a reporter in April, 2011 (listed below).

I continue to work at CBC Saskatchewan as a radio and television reporter/editor and as an associate producer for current affairs radio shows. I also compiled and submitted some of CBC News Saskatchewan's award applications--including their television RTDNA submissions for 2011.

Reporter - print/web/social media

Brandon Sun

I worked at my hometown paper during the summer between my two years at journalism school. I was a general assignment reporter, but I also worked on some online multimedia content during my stay.

At the Sun, I was the lone reporter some weekends, and I was busy with flood coverage and spot news. Some of my stories were also published in the Winnipeg Free Press.

Census Enumerator

Statistics Canada

I was in charge of counting heads and conducting on-site interviews at hundreds of dwellings in and around Brandon, Manitoba. This involved driving around a mapped region, approaching homes, and persuading many reluctant subjects to provide information. It also included troubleshooting with provincial and federal  headquarters, and long hours of precise data recording and entry.
