CTV Montreal News ReporterCindy was born in Montreal and though she has travelled extensively, has always made her home here. She considered becoming an actor and obtained a B.A. in English, Drama and Theatre from McGill University in 1989.
To the delight of her academic parents Cindy began pursuing a graduate degree, but she caught the broadcasting bug and never looked back. After working as an unpaid intern she was rewarded with her first job as a radio co-host and producer, which led to other positions at CJAD including traffic, entertainment and news reporting.
Cindy segued into television when she was invited to work on CFCF's last season of the consumers affairs show Fighting Back, followed by nine months anchoring at the Weather Network. Hired in 1997 at what was then called Pulse News, Cindy enjoyed working the medical and environment beat for a few years before going back to the big, wide, world of general news, never knowing when she wakes up whether she'll be sent up in a blimp, to a flood zone or these days, to a crumbling construction site. She also enjoys her role at CTV as a regular fill-in anchor.
In 2007 Cindy won an RTNDA award for a report called "Drowsy Driving," and in 2010 won a Multiple Sclerosis Society's John Alexander Media Award for her report "Multiple Choice."
Cindy is also the mother of two amazing and hilarious children, Cameron and Erin, she is also extremely busy. Cindy finds time however to indulge her interests: jogging, yoga, long family walks, music, cooking, meeting new people and her quest to visit all the world's most beautiful beaches, Australia, Bali, Belize.
