Amanda Follett Hosgood is a freelance journalist and communications specialist who has been living in Smithers for almost 14 years. She did her undergrad in journalism at Carleton University and spent five years working as a reporter and assistant editor at community newspapers in Alberta. In 2006, she visited Smithers and never left. She completed a master’s degree in communication, specializing in intercultural communication, at Royal Roads University in 2009. In addition to doing contract communications and editing work, Amanda has contributed to publications like British Columbia Magazine, Western Living, Coast Mountain Culture and Northword. She lives with her four-year-old daughter, husband and husky in the home they built just outside Smithers.

I think the future of Smithers’ business community is bright. There’s a new generation of people starting out and taking over old businesses in the community, supplying new ideas and breathing life into this town. The people here are friendly and support each other, but I think that the best thing about our town is the diversity of people here.

-Peter Krause, Owner, McBike & Sport and Chamber Member since 1983
