Using the Power of Story with Joelle Tomlinson

January 23, 2020

In this episode I'm joined by Joelle Tomlinson, co-anchor of CTV Morning Live here in Calgary. I met Joelle while doing a segment and was blown away by her welcoming nature, wit and professional generosity. 

Joelle shares her experience of adoption into a white family, how she got into her career, what a day in the life looks like for morning TV, and then we have a heartfelt conversation about her brother's accidental death due to a fentanyl overdose. Joelle shares how this experience has shaped her outlook on life and the power of sharing your story with others.
