Jill is an award-winning journalist with a passion for telling people’s stories. She is drawn to the types of stories that tug on the heart strings, and enjoys exploring topics that don’t always make the headlines. She takes pride in getting the story beyond the story.
“I admire the strength in so many people I have come across who trust me to share their personal experiences with Calgarians,” she says. “It’s a responsibility I respect and never take for granted.”
Jill is proud and humbled by the international and national awards she has won for some of her investigative reporting. Among the awards, she has been recognized for her undercover work exposing substance abuse on construction work sites and for a hidden camera investigation at nightclubs accused of racial profiling. She has also been honoured for her piece on an emotional reunion between a young man and the off-duty firefighter who saved his life.
Jill’s career started in Dawson Creek, B.C. She also worked in newsrooms in Victoria and Kelowna before settling in Alberta where she was born and raised. It’s home…and it’s where she and her husband Chris have chosen to raise their two daughters, Sophia and Sadie.
