Tomasia was born in Portugal and was raised in Calgary.
She has worked in Alberta, BC and Saskatchewan since graduating from SAIT in the early ‘90s, but is proud to return to the city she loves.
Some of the highlights of her career include a National RTNDA Award for “A Life Worth Living” – the story of a family battling their daughter’s terminal illness.
She was also honoured with Best News Reporting for “Mudslide” – a series of investigative reports about a deadly mudslide in Vancouver.
And Tomasia will never forget covering the devastating Pine Lake Tornado for both Canadian and U.S. networks.
This very busy mom loves spending time with her partner Keith, their daughter Trinity, and their two cats. She is also a very proud member of the Portuguese community in Calgary.
Tomasia also loves shopping, but only if she finds a great deal, because it’s all about saving money!
