Missy is often soaked from the rain as she wheels her bike in weekday mornings, but she is our source of sunshine at the office! A passionate food enthusiast (but don’t call her a foodie), hot sauce and mustard connoisseur, and lover of karaoke and board games, Missy finds the fun in every situation but has a steely work ethic. She studied Broadcast Journalism at BCIT, led a 10-year career working in unscripted TV, and worked a wide variety of TV series, but it’s her purpose in life—asking questions and sharing stories—that makes her True Calling episodes so popular.

Lists! I’m kind of neurotic. Whether it’s personal or work, I’m always trying to keep organized and I don’t want to drop the ball.
