Shameless Magazine

In October 2008 I created an online column for Shameless Magazine called Shameless Women which profiled positive female role models for young women. Over two and a half years I interviewed over sixty women from different professions, causes, backgrounds, ethnicities, orientations, and anything/everything else. I ended the column in March 2011 when I became editor of Canada Arts Connect Magazine.

During my time at Shameless Magazine, I also wrote articles / posts on various topics relevant to “girls who get it.” Along with appearing on the website, many of my pieces were also featured in the print version of the magazine.
