Kat Tancock is a freelance writer primarily focused on travel. Her work has appeared in The Globe and Mail, Westjet Magazine, Canadian Business, Reader's Digest, Canadian Living, the San Francisco Chronicle, and numerous other publications. Based in Toronto but raised in B.C. (and New Zealand), she brings a national approach to her work and is never happier than when covering her home province.
Thanks to an offbeat post-secondary education, Kat speaks good Russian, half-decent French and some Spanish and Croatian, skills that have come in handy on assignment in countries like Mexico and Armenia. She is a trained (though woefully out of practice) yoga teacher, and has also taught Russian at the University of Toronto and web editorial for magazines at Ryerson University.
Kat has worked in the Canadian magazine industry for over a decade and in digital media for more than 20 years. She currently focuses her attention on her content marketing agency Tavanberg, whose client list includes Sobeys, United Way and Plan International Canada. She is also contributing editor at Food & Drink.
