Where were you born?
I was born and raised in Clare, Nova Scotia. It’s the Acadian municipality with the best dialect ever.
What’s your educational background?
I graduated with a BA in Communications and English from STU in 2012.
What’s your favourite thing about working in communications?
The variety. A new day usually comes with a new topic to concentrate on.
If you could have one superpower what would it be and why
Invisibility. The “why” might get me in trouble with law enforcement. 😉
What’s something surprising someone might not know about you?
That I’m a skateboarder. It’s the reason my legs are usually covered in bruises – concrete is a tough teacher.
What’s your favourite place to visit in New Brunswick?
I love the Irving Nature Park – it’s super close, yet super quiet. I also loved Mount Carleton. One trip there left a big impression.
Quick hitters: First, Cats or Dogs?
Anyone who comes to my house will know I could never choose. The paws outnumber the feet 31:4. (Editor’s note: Toro, one of the cats, has three legs.)
Coffee or tea?
I will gladly dump both in the sink for a cup of hot chocolate.
Favourite breakfast cereal?
Lucky Charms. I’m 30, but my palate is still five.
Beach or big city vacation?
I’ve had lots of good ones – Sheila Henderson taught me so much, but Julian Walker brought ice cream cake to the last class of every term. It’s really a tough call.
Last book you read?
I’m a chronic re-reader. So depending on when people read this, it’ll either be Ender’s Game, Dolores Claiborne, The Miseducation of Cameron Post, or A Complicated Kindness.
