Hi! I’m Kathleen. I am a “word person.”

I’m a storyteller, writer, editor, and public speaker.


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 landed the role of Digital Publishing Assistant (contract) at Geist Magazine. Now, I’m an Editing and Publishing Specialist for Central 1 (and I still get to proofread for Geist).

Besides writing and publishing, I am passionate about popcorn, Ru Paul’s Drag Race, human rights, and travel. I’ve travelled all over Southeast Asia, Australia, Europe, and America. But for now, I truly love living as a guest on unceded Coast Salish territories. Vancouver is a beautiful place (and our live drag and comedy scenes are pretty great if you ask me!).

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