Hello! I’m Kelsey, a freelance writer and researcher living in Montreal. My work has appeared in the National Post, the Toronto Star, National Observer, Maisonneuve, The Logic and BetaKit, among others. I’m currently a section editor at CIM Magazine, a mining trade publication with an audience of more than 10,000. I manage the front- and back-of-book departments, including our news section, and am also responsible for regularly updating the magazine’s website. I developed a weekly newsletter that recaps the most important mining news, which has engendered reader loyalty and boosted our weekend traffic numbers. During 2018, I ran a year-long editorial project spotlighting the accomplishments and struggles of minority groups in mining.
I’ve written about everything from what you should know about becoming a socially responsible investor to a behind-the-scenes look at a Toronto subway shutdown, to why Doug Ford will likely lose a fight with the feds over Canada’s carbon tax. In 2018, I reported for Maisonneuve on how generations of Canadians born with heart defects have lived longer than doctors were ready for. The resulting lack of resources for those adult patients, I learned, can have terrible consequences.
In 2013 I was part of a team that published a joint Ryerson School of Journalism/Toronto Star investigation into kitchen safety and inspection disclosure in institutions that care for vulnerable citizens, which inspired two changes in Toronto Public Health’s disclosure policy and was nominated for a CAJ award.
