    I am excited to be a part of the editorial team at the Star and Times. I grew up on a small family farm here in the Valley, left to pursue a Bachelor of Education degree, and then lived in Brandon for a few years. The longing for 'home' and small town living kept coming back, so my husband and I decided to move back to Swan River and make it our home. I have been an avid reader, writer and photographer for quite a long time, often filling every spare moment with a new book or a photographic expedition. I am eager to put my passions to use in sharing the stories of the Valley. Having learned a few of the details of the newspaper industry, I am excited to learn all there is about sharing current and relevant news with you. I look forward to meeting with you to learn your story and share it with the community you and I can be proud to call home.
