An award-winning journalist with 15 years of experience, Paula started reporting for newspapers and magazines before making the switch into online journalism.
She considers the world of Web her ‘home’ with opportunities taking her from being part of the 2003 Webby-award winning CBC Radio 3 online magazine and producing one of the very first multi-media convergence projects, CBC’s Home Delivery [pre-podcasts!] – to being an online writer and editor for various publications in Canada.
Paula joined the Global BC newsroom as an online news producer in January 2013 and as a self-professed ‘news junkie’, loves being part of the dynamic Global BC team.
Along with attending journalism school in Vancouver, she has an eclectic background with two degrees in exercise physiology; which is why it’s not strange to find Paula running with her dog, Walter, through the north shore trails in her spare time. The rest of her time is spent feeding her wanderlust addiction.
Paula reports on Global BC’s Morning News and BC1.
