A little bit about you:
Jennie is a graduate of the Ryerson School of Journalism, story-teller, and recent Vancouver transplant. Having worked several years at a women's resource centre, Jennie focuses much of her work on issues surrounding gender, sexual violence, and sex work. Now a Master’s Candidate in SFU’s Global Communications program, she hopes her writing can help lift the voices of women effected by genderbased oppression.

A little bit about your role at PWB:
Jennie joined PWB as the Magazine Editor in Fall 2018, and worked to produce three print issues. Jennie helps manage a team of writers and works closely with the marketing director and photo curator to publish regular online content and two print magazines each year.

What's the best part of your job?
The best part of my job is being able to work with different talents and voices to create one stunning magazine. After six months of work, it's amazing to hold the final product in my hands and appreciate the diverse group of people who made it all happen.

                                                                         

What inspires you?
The women and activists that I've been so lucky to grow up with, work with and study with. They inspire me to live every day with purpose.

 When you are not working, what do you enjoy doing?
When not writing or smashing the patriarchy on Instagram, I'm often found sipping kombucha by the waterfront or probably travelling.
