Carly Weeks
Health reporter

When I was a child, I dreamed of working at The Globe and Mail. So it's pretty special to have recently celebrated 10 years with the paper. I arrived here from Ottawa, where I was a Parliamentary reporter specializing in consumer issues for the now-defunct CanWest News Service. In that role, I naturally gravitated toward the health side of consumer issues: product safety, food recalls, new Health Canada rulings on medications. When I started working at the Globe, I sharpened my focus on health and love that I get to spend my time writing about issues that touch the lives of all Canadians. I'm originally from Sault Ste. Marie, or "The Soo." I even got my first byline at age 15 in the Sault Star as a teen writer! These days, when I'm not writing stories, I'm busy having fun with my husband and one-year-old son.
