Stacey Thidrickson got a taste for journalism as a teenager when she got her first byline in the Selkirk Journal — the same newspaper that helped launch her career more than 20 years ago.
She worked at the Interlake Spectator, Stonewall Argus, Portage la Prairie Daily Graphic and Winnipeg Sun before landing a copy editor’s job at the Winnipeg Free Press in 2007.
Stacey became the Free Press’ first female night news editor, curating hundreds of front pages. She moved into the position of associate editor of operations and engagement in 2018.
Outside of work, Stacey can be found walking her husky-shepherd cross all over the city, indulging in good food and wine, and challenging friends and family to games of Scrabble, cribbage or pool.
If she won the lottery tomorrow, she would move to the Piedmont region of Italy, her happy place.
