Thompson Rivers University

Author: Dawn-Louise McLeod

Weyt-kp. (hello to all). I'm a writer/editor/content specialist in Marketing and Communications (MarCom). It's my pleasure to research, collaborate, interview, edit, proofread, write, commiserate and laugh when creating stories about diverse topics of interest to the TRU community. Throughout 14 years of BCOU in Burnaby and TRU in Kamloops, I've worked variously as a contract editor, course production technician, copyeditor, course editor and writer/editor, serving on institutional committees and studying on-campus and online (earning two credentials). I enjoy exploring the university and Kamloops, talking to people and writing. Everyone has a story and everyone has something to share about what they've learned. Me7 wíktlmen (see you all later).
