I spent my formative years in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, believing I wanted to be a brain surgeon, a radiologist, a dentist, a psychologist, and finally, a lawyer, before realising that fashion is not only a viable industry in which to make career (who knew?!), but a fun one.
After graduating with a B.A. (Hons.) from Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, I spent six years at FASHION Magazine (Canada’s most-read glossy, with over 1.9 million readers each issue), including three as its Western Editor, before being recruited as Managing Editor of content at Aritzia, one of North America’s top women’s fashion boutiques.
Along the way, I’ve written about fashion, food, travel, and design for FLARE, ELLE Canada, Canadian House & Home, enRoute, the Vancouver Sun, Chatelaine, Wallpaper, the Globe & Mail, the Georgia Straight, WE, and Montecristo. I was the inaugural city editor for Sweetspot.ca and wrote and co-edited the Shops section of Time Out Vancouver: 2nd ed.
I have also made numerous TV appearances, reporting on everything from fashion trends to celebrity style for CityTV, Urban Rush, the CBC’s Living Vancouver, and even NBC (for which I taped a short segment during the 2010 Winter Olympics). I’ve taught fashion writing, and somewhere along the line, also finished my law degree.
In 2011, I moved to London for a new adventure and am now Marketing Editor at THE OUTNET.COM, but am still updating this site – so do check back. Thanks for visiting! x
