My career path is

When I graduated high school I went to university and completed a BSc in biological science. But I always dreamed of being in television news. After I completed the BSc I went to the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT). Here I completed a two-year diploma program in Broadcast News. I've travelled to different cities to gain experience and get where I am today.

My advice to others

Do it for the right reasons. It's not a glamorous job and it's a lot of hard work.

My advice to others
How I affect people's livesI love telling people's stories! I find it extremely rewarding at the end of the day. I hope people feel something or learn something from each story I tell. I hope people are better informed because of what we broadcast.

What I do at work

There are scheduled meetings each morning to discuss story ideas. We then spend the day researching stories of interest and making phone calls to connect with the appropriate people to help us tell those stories. As reporters we work with photographers to collect video and conduct interviews and then write the final copy. Our editors help us put the story together to air on the 6pm news. We are always solving problems as we have daily deadlines and must write an accurate and complete story each and every day. I am in constant communication with many colleagues including managers, producers, photographers and editors.
