Sharon joined Global News in October 2017, bringing with her a passion for connection, communication and contribution.
Having grown up in rural Manitoba, Sharon still considers herself a ‘small town’ girl. She stumbled into radio in Kenora Ont., and immediately fell in love with the ever changing world that is Broadcasting.
Sharon honed her story-telling skills as reporter/anchor for Island Radio in Nanaimo B.C. and in west Winnipeg as Community Correspondent for the Canstar Metro.
She stepped away from media to raise her family, venturing into small business, administration, marketing and early childhood learning.

Across many miles and many years, Sharon has developed a deep connection to the community in which she lives. She is most proud of her 4 fabulous kids and is thrilled to be a part of the Global family.
