Investigative reporter with the Institute of Investigative Journalism between 2019 and 2020.
During a summer fellowship work placement at the University of MacEwan, I worked with the Institute of Investigative Journalism to delve deep into the issue of lead in Canadian drinking water. As one of the student Investigative Reporters, I researched through town records, academic articles, as well as conducted interviews through cold calling, door to door, and source research. Partnering with universities and media organizations from across Canada And The United States, we've uncovered the truth.
