Hi! I’m Kathleen. I am a writer, editor, and digital marketer.

I am passionate about storytelling, writing, editing, public speaking, and human rights.


In 2019, I completed a 12-month intensive Publishing diploma at Langara College. The program strengthened my determination to work in content creation and gave me a solid foundation in the Adobe Creative Suite. During the program, I was an Editorial Assistant for Langara College’s Alumni & Community Engagement department; Managing Editor for Pacific Rim Magazine; and Online Editor/Promotions Specialist for the online edition of Pacific Rim. When school finished, I was lucky enough to land the role of Digital Publishing Assistant (contract) at Geist Magazine. Now, I’m an Editing and Publishing Specialist for Central 1.

Besides writing and publishing, I am passionate about peanut butter, my family, Ru Paul’s Drag Race, and travel. I have travelled all over Southeast Asia, Australia, and Europe. Though I think travel has shaped who I am, I truly love living as a guest on unceded Coast Salish territories. Vancouver is a beautiful place.

I also love a good conversation. Want to have one? Get in touch here.
