Soon, I’ll be moving to Washington, DC to serve as the Toronto Star’s US correspondent. I’m very excited to be an observer of this moment in that big and fascinating country.

What a month! Got married, definitely won Muffin Day even though @JoeCallaghan84 won't declare it, AND finally landed my dream job as a @TorontoStar reporter! So grateful for the support of my digital desk colleagues/managers, and all the lovely editors I'm blessed to work with.

Some exciting news that I've probably waited too long to post: I've accepted a position as Supervisor, Online News with @ctvedmonton and will be moving there toward the end of the month!
It's been a great 4 years at @CTVNewsVI and I'll miss our dedicated snack table a LOT.

In personal news: today is my last day at CityNews. I was given an amazing opportunity to hone my TV skills and produce some incredible stories over the past year. It’s a bittersweet transition, but I’m very excited about my next adventure. Look for me this fall on CTV Montreal! pic.twitter.com/69dovdZamR

Personal news: In light of @thediscourse's latest announcement (https://t.co/c6BNzns8It), I've transitioned into a consulting role with the company and am now looking for my next gig (hopefully one that's as fulfilling as my time at Discourse has been). I specialize in media…

MY FINAL COLUMN: After 20 years of championing the consumer cause in the Toronto Star’s Business and Life sections, my columns in the newspaper have come to an end. I’ve had a great run, aided enormously by readers’ support and sharing of experiences. https://t.co/Pa6LWFGsYR

For the next part of my plan to embody Big Prairie Energy, I'm thrilled to be continuing with the @EdmontonJournal as a full-time reporter for the coming year. The stellar people in the newsroom are teaching me so much and I feel lucky to keep learning from our city. 🌾
