Karlee Kapler

Karlee Kapler is a frizzy introvert who is completing her English degree at AU. She adores dogs (so much so that every time she encounters a dog she feels the need to point at it), loves impressionist artists, can’t seem to get enough coffee and definitely isn’t interested in hearing about how carbs make you gain weight. She lives with her husband, two dogs and two cats in Grande Prairie, Alberta and wouldn’t have it any other way.

Karlee works full-time as a Marketing and Recreation Coordinator at a seniors living facility and wishes she had more time to read The New Yorker, watch re-runs of Sex and the City, and work on her charcoal drawings. If she could only study one thing, it would be early 20th century American literature. When she finishes her degree, she hopes to obtain a full-time job either as a writer, editor, in communications, or go on to pursue graduate studies in literature or library and information studies. She also wouldn’t mind working as an archivist or at a museum, as she enjoys history. In the past she has worked as an editorial contributor for both The Waggle and Papercut magazine, and is looking to develop her resume further. Karlee is excited to join the team at The Voice Magazine!
