Logistics Team Member

Althea is a journalist and digital producer at CBC Radio, where she produces video and multimedia content for national radio shows. She has a Masters in Journalism from Ryerson University and a Bachelor of Arts from Western University.


She is also an independent filmmaker, having produced and directed several short films and documentaries. Her horror short Clown Killer screened at the 2018 Toronto After Dark Film Festival.


As a member of the Make-A-Wish Rising Stars Committee, Althea hopes to use her skills to make a positive impact on the community and encourage others to do the same.


In her spare time, Althea enjoys baking and most definitely jumped on the sourdough bandwagon during quarantine. If she had one wish, it would be to end the pandemic and throw a worldwide block party filled with mask-less hugs and baked goods.

What would your wish be?

To take a year (or two) off and travel the world on a motorcycle

Where would your ideal travel destination be?

Southeast Asia has a special place in my heart, but Australia is next on my list.

What is your go-to place in the city?

Anywhere with ice cream and/or cookies.
