Jacqueline Gelineau

I'm a reporter who is passionate about science, equity, the environment and providing the public with accessible information. I joined the team at Capital News in November 2021 after relocating to Kelowna from Saskatoon. I have a Bsc. in agriculture from the U of S where I majored in environmental science. I look forward to growing as a journalist and am always eager to hear unique perspectives and learn something new.
My dog Ranger is often by my side as my 'assistant reporter' and adventure buddy.
