Katelyn is a Canadian journalist and medical writer currently working as a Science Communications Specialist for The Terry Fox Research Institute. Her journalistic skills have been honed in some of Canada’s top newsrooms – including CTV Vancouver, The Globe and Mail, The Vancouver Sun, and The Toronto Star, where she is a weekly contributor.
Katelyn holds a Masters of Journalism from the University of British Columbia Graduate School of Journalism (2014) and an Honours Bachelor degree in Psychology from Queen’s University (2011). She has also written for the Canadian Medical Association Journal (CMAJ) and NeuroDevNet, a Canadian Network of Centres of Excellence.
Whether from the back of an organic produce delivery truck in China, interviewing leading cancer researchers across the country, or reporting on rare diseases and million dollar medications, science and health reporting are her passions.
