Keili Bartlett reports for Coast Reporter on everything from the Sunshine Coast Regional District and school board to community news as it happens.

Keili has been reporting in B.C. since 2017, when she moved to Prince Rupert before heading south to Victoria, Squamish, Nelson, and now Sechelt. Originally, Keili is a bluenoser from Nova Scotia, where she learned the trade at the University of King's College in Halifax.

When not at her desk, Keili can be found hiking, paddleboarding and enjoying the outdoors with a camera or coffee in her hand.
