Katrina Valcourt

Katrina Valcourt came onboard the HONOLULU team as assistant managing editor after Honolulu Weekly, where she was the managing/calendar editor, unexpectedly bit the dust. Before that, she worked as a video production assistant, studied abroad in Berlin and Florence and graduated from UH with a major in communication and a minor in English. She’s originally from a teeny town called 100 Mile House in British Columbia, Canada, but she hasn’t been in a snowball fight since 1995. She is now the associate editor.
