Carolyn then moved to Barrie, Ontario where she was a Reporter and Anchor at the New VR for several years helping the station win a number of Radio & Television News Directors of Canada Awards (RTNDA) for “Best Newscast” for a small/medium market. In 2005, Carolyn returned home to Toronto and joined the Global News Team.

In 2006, Carolyn won the RTNDA Edward R. Murrow Award for “Best Investigative Journalist” for her series on transit inaccessibility. She also won “Best Spot News Story” from York Regional Police for her coverage of a home invasion in Vaughan. Other career highlights include covering the Air France crash, the Queen’s Jubilee visit, and helping Global Toronto win an RTNDA for “Best Continuing Coverage” on the arrests of the Toronto Terror Suspects.  Carolyn now adds a new role to her resume…mom.
