Sarah Offin started her passion for storytelling young, working for a local newspaper and radio station in her hometown of Mackenzie, B.C.
She was brought to Calgary in 2004, drawn by her love of speed skating, to study at U of C, and skate at the neighbouring Olympic Oval. She finished part of her Communications Studies degree studying in Leicester, England, before returning to Calgary and earning her Broadcasting diploma at SAIT Polytechnic.
Her first television job was in Lloydminster, reporting and anchoring at Newcap TV. From there, she took to the sky in Calgary, reporting traffic from the Global One helicopter in 2009. She also worked in Red Deer and Edmonton as a videojournalist before making the move back to Global Calgary in 2011, as a reporter and fill-in anchor.
Career highlights include the 2011 Slave Lake wildfire and the 2013 Calgary flood. Her work on a 2013 series about Alberta’s wild horse with cameraman George Glenn earned them the Stan Clinton Award for News Essay Cinematography.
You’ll find Sarah chasing wildlife and exploring Alberta’s great outdoors, both in her work and in her spare time.
