This great news!
It is said that the best journeys in life lead you home.
I’m thrilled to let you know that I’ve accepted a big opportunity; my next chapter is bringing me back home to Alberta, as the new Program Director of Jim Pattison’s up! 99.3 in Edmonton. A strong radio station with an incredibly talented team that I can’t wait to work with!
To everyone in this vibrant city that I’ve connected with over the past 8.5 years, from co-workers to mentors and friends, thanks for making it such a memorable chapter of my life.
It’s time to move home. My kids and my family are all excited I’m moving closer to them. My gal Sara is bouncing off the walls with excitement too… Heck let’s be real, so am I.
On to the next chapter my friends!
