I’m delighted to introduce Katelyn Brown as the new SWCC General Manager.
Katelyn joined us starting August 1, 2021 and will transition into the role as current General Manager Nikki Berreth prepares to return to school (and to work on her novel) in September.
We’ll miss Nikki, who has been a steady hand on the SWCC tiller since 2019 and wish her all the best in the future. Nikki: we hope you can come to the 2022 annual conference so we can say a proper goodbye and thank you!
Katelyn, who attended McMaster University, comes to the SWCC from the World Molecular Imaging Society, where she was previously the sales and society relations manager. I’ll let Katelyn describe herself:
My name is Katelyn Brown and I am delighted and grateful for the opportunity to join the Science Writers and Communicators of Canada team! I am excited to use my skills and experience to connect and foster growth in all areas of science throughout Canada and beyond by building a strong sense of community and value. I am hopeful to engage with current members and future prospects through traditional communications and social media.
I look forward to making this transition as seamless as possible for everyone, as well as developing strong relationships with everyone. If there is ever any pertinent information that I need to know, please always feel free to reach out. I am very grateful for the opportunity and look forward to meeting you all!
Katelyn and Nikki will be working together during the transition over the coming few weeks, before Katelyn takes over sole responsibility for the role on September 1. As usual, if you need to contact us, please use the firstname.lastname@example.org email address.
