Announcing our new Editor in Chief

The Community Edition is excited to announce our new incoming Editor in Chief, Melissa Embury. Avid TCE readers should recognize her name from amongst our pages for the past year –  you can review her past stories here. Outside of TCE, Melissa not only brings her enthusiasm to the team but extensive experience as a freelance journalist, great travel stories, a pretty cool cat and a love for Waterloo Region. Have a story idea? You can contact Melissa at

But the news gets even better!

Melissa Embury and Kristina Lalatovic

We are also welcoming Kristina Lalatovic as our Community Engagement Coordinator. Kristina co-founded the Coworkers Collective and has spent the last three years organizing Events and Community Partnerships with HackerNest. She’ll be working alongside Melissa and our Publisher, Lakyn, to develop new community partnerships, events and fundraisers. Have an idea you want to connect with Kristina about? Contact her at

As you can see from the photo above, they are pretty stoked to be joining the team – almost as excited as we are. Melissa and Kristina will be leading the next issue and we can’t wait to see the direction they take TCE in. We hope you’ll come along for the ride with us.

The next issue of TCE hits stands December 4th – but until then, pick up our latest issue which dropped November 6.
