Some personal news: After 3.5 memorable years @nowtoronto, I'll be moving to @dailyxtra in August as their new Community Manager. I'm looking forward to this next chapter in my career, helping to grow Xtra's social media and digital presence and amplify #queer voices. https://t.co/mJMOxE2J0c

And so I wanted to share some personal news. I’m leaving National Observer to pursue a new challenge in journalism as an investigative producer at Global News. I'm thrilled about joining this award-winning team. #cdnmedia #cdnfoi #investigativejournalism #journalismmatters

So I guess it’s officially time to share that I’ve joined @ppforumca to work on the Digital Democracy Project, a collaboration between PPF and @MaxBellSchool to track what kind of information is circulating in the online media ecosystem leading up to October’s Canadian election.

Farewell to Roy MacGregor, one of the true legends of Canadian journalism. Sometimes the word “legend” gets thrown around lightly… in the case of @RoyMacG, its entirely appropriate. https://t.co/7R6TCMAsbt

I am full of EMOTIONS today and in case you aren't into sappy threads, the TLDR for you is that today is my last day with the wonderful team @Chatelaine and I'll be starting as an audience development editor at @postmedianet next week!

Fun fact! Last week I started at HuffPost Canada + Yahoo Canada as an Editorial Assistant! Excited for what's to come + to have colleagues that are not the squirrels fighting on the tree in front of my window while I'm trying to work

a bit of news, I’m off to DC and then Berlin for the Arthur Burns fellowship! I’ll still be doing some stuff for VICE, but I’ll also be working for @dwnews. Will be back in Toronto in October.

Hi! Heads-up you’ll probably be seeing my @CBCNews byline a lot less soon. This is my last week here in the bureau. However, I’ll still be in Washington and will be joining NPR’s @MorningEdition + @UpFirst as an editor later this month! Very jazzed about it!

Some personal news — I am officially the national online supervising editor for lifestyle @globalnews
While this means writing less (I know, sad😶), I can focus more time on creating larger projects and strategies for lifestyle as a whole. Super excited to start! 👀

I officially quit CBC.
I’ve been on leave to run my charity for the last yr & was to return Aug 1.
But I can’t.
CBC wasn’t for me anymore.
These kids need me.
They need to play.
