Connecting with the Ottawa At Home team

Korey Kealey, Food Thoughts contributor 

I love the creative outlet the column allows me. We establish a theme and then I imagine what would suit it and the creative juices flow! It’s a foodie playground. Follow Korey on Twitter 


Melissa Shabinsky, Beauty contributor 

I love that I am able to share all things green and glam from the latest beauty products to bringing beauty into your home. Follow Melissa on Twitter


Andrew Downward, Capital Colours contributor

My Capital Colours column allows me to share some of the most dynamic trends in colour and applications to a very design-savvy market. Being a part of Ottawa at Home is truly a privilege and an honour! @andrewdownward

Sandy Connell, New & Notable contributor 

What I love most about writing New & Notable is being in the know about what’s happening in Ottawa.

Alexia Naidoo, Features contributor

Writing for Ottawa at Home has allowed me to meet some of the most incredible people in our city. Every feature I’ve worked on allows me to write about people who both challenge themselves and inspire others to create amazing lives. It’s a dream job! @AlexiaNaidoo 

Vera Cody, Step Inside contributor

Everyone has a story to tell. Each interview is like a blank canvas. I enjoy sitting down with Ottawa personalities and learning something new about them. Their candour and willingness to share their story is always inspiring.  @verahereforu

Catherine Clark, Giving Back contributor 

I feel so fortunate to write the Giving Back column. This city is full of remarkable, caring people who work tirelessly to make Ottawa a better place, and it’s a true joy to share their stories.


Olivia Taggart, Web editor

As a journalism student at school in Boston, I love that I can stay on top of the latest lifestyle issues in Ottawa.
