I always knew I wanted to work with books—I just wasn’t sure how. I got my BA in English Literature and Creative Writing and quickly realized I didn’t want to write books, but it was only after a brief stint in Library Sciences that I found my way to publishing. I had the absolute pleasure of interning at WCA during my final semester in Centennial College’s publishing certificate, and I couldn’t have asked for a better introduction to the industry. Nowadays as office manager I have a front row seat to all of our goings-on: from assisting our wide range of talented authors to being the first in line to crack open boxes of their up-and-coming books, I have the privilege of seeing many aspects of the agency.

When I’m reading, I’m drawn to fiction and have a particular fondness for character-driven fantasy and cozy contemporaries. My favourites range from bone-chilling stories (pun intended) like Gideon the Ninth by Tamsyn Muir to heartfelt books that give me the warm and fuzzies like We Are Okay by Nina Lacour. Outside of reading, I roll dice (poorly) in tabletop games, herd cats, and continue to try and make the perfect cup of coffee one Chemex filter at a time.
