Helping people is my passion, along with holding public decision makers and people in power accountable.

I have been covering news in Ontario for more than a decade. Prior to becoming a full-time investigator, I started out as a county reporter, then covered the education beat for 10 years and spent about five years anchoring weekend morning and evening newscasts. I earned a nomination for uncovering corruption in the Police Department which ultimately ended with the police chief being stripped of his law enforcement license. Problems I highlighted during a flooding in a city prompted the city to put new barricade measures in place at low water crossings after a woman lost her life. My passion for storytelling took off during college internships at station in our small town. In my free time, I enjoy being outside with my dog hunting for cool cowboy boots and taking on DIY projects.

Is there any discrimination in your workplace?

We have rules against discrimination at work and so far people haven't had any issues.

I have a co-worker who makes jokes about other nationalities. It's just not right and he got reported to HR several times.

I think so. We have gays in the company and usually they are being treated as if they don't belong.

I don't think so. My co-workers are kind and funny.

Yeah. I overheard some of my office mates talking about the new finance manager and why she's black?! That's racism and discrimination.

The partners at work are very strict about that so everyone is really careful with what they say and do.

Is there any place in the world where there's no discrimination? Even at home, discrimination can be so common. pensive face

I'm not aware of any. That would be a huge issue if any was ever reported.

Discrimination is a taboo pretty much in all companies. Our company has a team working on diversity in the workplace.
