Tricia Weel

I’m a lifelong writer, and worked as a journalist in community newspapers for more than a decade, from White Rock to Parksville and Qualicum Beach, to Abbotsford and Surrey, from 2001-2012. After working in communications for several years, I switched my focus to running a home-based business with my husband, and helped grow that into a successful enterprise. Writing has always been a passion for me, however, and I returned to the journalism industry in 2022, to the Peace Arch News, where I first started while still a journalism student on a practicum in 2001.
