Lynne_Patterson_profile1

Lynne Patterson (BA'98) knew she wanted to further the skills she was honing in the History program and combine them with her love of reading and writing. After graduating, she entered the one-year Journalism program at the University of King's College and ended up working at alternative papers on both coasts before landing her current job doing communications for the Canadian Forces.

"Researching and writing history papers was a great kick-start to what I would do later as a journalist. Now, as a Canadian Forces member, history—and military history—is often a focus of my job.”
