Kelsey James

Community Journalist - Canstar, Free Press Community Review, West Edition

Kelsey James is the reporter/photographer for the Free Press Community Review. She graduated from Red River College’s creative communications program in 2018 as a journalism major and holds a bachelor’s degree in rhetoric, writing and communications from the University of Winnipeg. A lifelong Winnipegger who grew up in southwest Winnipeg, Kelsey is thrilled to be covering the neighbourhoods she still calls “home.”

Kelsey worked in corporate communications before returning to journalism and joining the Canstar Community News team. She won the Eric and Jack Wells Excellence in Journalism award in her final year of college and is happy to be finally sharing her passion for storytelling. In her free time, Kelsey can be found binge watching Grey’s Anatomy for the hundredth time, searching for the perfect cup of coffee, counting down the days until Halloween or adventuring with her one-year-old corgi mix, Finnegan.
