Story Crafter & Synthesizer
Meribeth comes to her work as an editor and writer with Big Bold Brand through an almost 20 year career in journalism. She worked at as a reporter and associate producer with CBC Radio for five years in various regions across Canada before stepping away to live the dream of a roving, globe-trotting producer of radio documentaries. Her work brought her to a demolished former cult on peninsular Malaysia, an archaeological dig site in Turkey, and many more strange and interesting locations.
Upon returning to Canada, she enjoyed a brief stint in documentary film and television before landing on a small West Coast community where she sunk into the role of editor of the local paper. This all-consuming position brought a new passion to the fore: working collaboratively with individuals and organizations to tell the stories most important to them, and to make an impact.
This is the impact Meribeth aims to continue in her work today. She loves to work with inspired people with big ideas, and to help them find powerful ways to tell their stories and deliver their communications with razor-sharp clarity.
When she is not writing and editing, she can be found chasing kids, skiing, riding her bike and lending a hand on community projects related to food, energy and sustainability.
