About Amy MacKenzie

Since graduating from St. Thomas University's Journalism Programme, I interned at New Brunswick's daily provincial newspaper,Telegraph-Journal, in Saint John, N.B. as a city, province and business reporter. While reporting at the Telegraph, I was able to apply the skills I had learned in J-school and had a great experience covering municipal elections, provincial by-elections, reporting on NB's booming ICT sector and events around the city including the 2012 Royal Tour. I feel lucky that I went to a journalism school that put an emphasis on being versatile as online journalism continues to grow. I now have a full-time job as a daily news reporter for www.ngnews.ca, a local paper for Pictou County, N.S. and I am able to apply the video, audio, and print journalism skills I learned from STU's profs to my job which requires all three in my "web-first" reporting job.
