My name is Flora. I’m a multimedia journalist working out of CBC Kitchener-Waterloo and Hamilton. I work in digital and radio mostly. Some days I will also film and edit a TOV for a multimedia piece. While I have not worked in TV, I did many video projects during my Master of Media in Journalism and Communication program at Western University.
I can’t say I remembered everything I learned for my BSc in biology, but I’m comfortable with reading scientific articles in academic journals. My areas of interest outside of health and science include education and social welfare.
