M. Harvey

Fresh out the Academy of Broadcasting in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Marissa Harvey pulled up her prairie roots, travelled across the country and planted herself in Northern BC, where she hopes to grow as a  journalist. By all accounts, it's been a surprisingly seamless transition... and not simply because she's used to the cold. Marissa has always been fascinated by people and their stories, which naturally led her to a career in journalism. She also has a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Social Sciences from Providence College, and studied religion at the University of Winnipeg - two experience that gave her a greater appreciation for the beauty and complexity of the world, as well as the people in it. Marissa is excited for what lies ahead - all the people she'll meet and stories she'll help tell in her new home.

When's  she not working, you'll find Marissa running outside (even in winter - she's from Winnipeg after all), taking in some live music or theatre, writing, or relaxing at home with a glass of wine and a stack of crossword puzzles.

Marissa welcomes any news tips or story ideas and can be reached via email or by calling 250-847-2773.
