Meet Judy, the Pen

As a reporter, Judy specialized in stories about Aboriginal issues, natural resources and conflict over land use. Her interest in Aboriginal people took her to CBC north, where she reported on-air and produced stories from around the Northwest Territories. A highlight was project managing CBC's coverage of the referendum to divide the NWT and create the new territory of Nunavut. Her experience as an executive producer brought her to Edmonton, where she ran the morning show, the newsroom and eventually the station. As managing director of CBC Edmonton and Northern Alberta, Judy was CBC's senior manager for Radio, TV and digital. She represented the public broadcaster to government, business and community leaders. A talented community leader in her own right, Judy pulled together diverse groups and used CBC as a platform to engage in crucial public policy discussions. Under her five years of leadership, CBC's audience increased significantly.

To get a taste of Judy's unique writing style and presentation, have a look at two of the books that she's written - The Washstand's Journey and Beth's Story. Download the PDFs here:
