The Now-Leader is proud to welcome Lauren Collins to its team of award-winning multimedia journalists.
“We are very excited to have Lauren join our newsroom,” said editor Beau Simpson. “Being from Surrey, and having worked here before, she knows the community and all the issues important to residents.”
Collins, who attended the Langara College journalism program, grew up in Surrey and moved to Vancouver Island in 2016 to work at Black Press Media’s Parksville Qualicum Beach News.
While at the PQB News, Collins covered arts and entertainment, community events and municipal politics. Before moving to the island, she also freelanced for the Cloverdale Reporter and the Surrey Leader.
