Well… I’ve been trying to figure out what to say and I’m just still in shock.
I’m 27. I started working at CHCH when I was just 22 years old. I landed a job hosting the EARLIEST morning show IN CANADA when I was just 23. Then… I got engaged, we bought our first place and at 24 I was married. When I turned 25 I was asked to host one of Canada’s most ICONIC Television Shows. Tiny Talent Time was on the air for 30 years and we were bringing it back! At 26 we bought our first house. At 27 I got to produce and host a Behind the Scenes Series for my favourite show Nashville! Does it get any cooler than that!? Yesterday, CHCH might have let me and so many of my friends and colleagues go but I’ll cherish these memories forever.
Check out one of our blooper reels below:
In a way, I’m so sad that this period of my life has come to an end. Tim Bolen has become a very good friend of mine. I call him my ‘work husband’ but really he’s more like a brother to me. He’s my therapy session in the makeup room (Literally… he knows everything that’s going on in my life HA. Poor guy. I might need to start paying him just to listen to me now). He’s been such a wonderful role model and support system for me over the past four and half years. We have had an INSANE amount of fun together. I know we’ll be friends for life.
Remember when we were on a bus!?
Oh… and that’s my ‘work dad’. Producer Don as they call him around the office. I’ll have to make an effort to send him numerous texts in sequence on a weekly basis.
Nicola Jones… my ‘work sister’. I’ll never ever ever ever forget the times we shared at CHCH. Some of my favourite memories are the ones in the video below:
I’ve had so much fun working at CHCH and I’ve met so many wonderful people and I am very thankful for that. Being on Morning Live with Bob and Annette, Lori and Luke, Brian and the many reporters we’ve had on the show and of course the AMAZING team behind the scenes has been wonderful. These people have become my ‘work family’.
I should also mention that some of my BEST friends are my friends from work. Cara, Deepa and I met at CHCH and decided to make youtube videos as Bella Trois.
What an amazing 5 years of my life. Thank you CHCH and thank you to everyone who has made these years so memorable. Onto the next chapter of my life.
Until next time,
