Where My Work Has Been Published:
Hi, I'm Laurie!
Although I have written stories on hundreds of famous celebrities, politicians, and corporate leaders, I find it difficult to write about myself! To put it simply, I love to write and am blessed to be able to do so as a career.
After graduating from Journalism, I began my career as a cub reporter at CKOC Radio in Hamilton. I later spent many happy years as the Marketing/Public Relations Director of Stage West Theatre Restaurants in Edmonton and Mississauga, working with well known celebrities like Jamie Farr, Mickey Rooney, and others. As a seasoned Public Relations Specialist, I have helped formulate strategic plans for dozens of private clients.
One of the things I love most about being a freelance writer is that no two days are ever the same. I lovingly wear many hats and work with various media outlets and private clients as a professional travel writer (TMAC member), food writer/cookbook columnist, entertainment/feature writer, blogger, advertorial and content writer.
Whether it is a magazine article, a media release, a blog or an advertorial, everyone has a story to tell. I would be honoured to help craft your story!

When the Association of Professional Fundraising Professionals – Central Ontario Chapter (AFPCON) was looking for a writer for our 2022 Edition of the “Gifts That Last” Magazine we were provided a recommendation to Laurie. She produced six inspiring donor stories from a variety of charities within our catchment area. Laurie was a pleasure to work with and she adhered to our tight time lines. Her writing was clear and beautifully conveyed the important impact of each featured charity.
