Amanda Follett Hosgood

Amanda was raised in suburban Toronto and completed her journalism degree at Carleton University in Ottawa before moving to a small Alberta town in the Canadian Rockies. She promptly forgot about her degree and learned to rock climb, snowboard and wait tables, with varying degrees of success. Eventually, she cycled back to wanting to share and write stories and began working at the local community newspaper. In 2006, she visited Smithers and never left, falling in love with northern B.C.’s lifestyle, landscapes and — especially — community.
