Andrea Horton

The Free Press would like to welcome Andrea Horton to our team as our new Advertising Representative.

A long time local, Andrea was raised in Fernie and remembers when Fernie was a small mining town with an amazing ski hill in our backyards, long before Fernie was an international tourist destination.

After moving away to attend college in the Okanagan, she returned to Fernie with her two children in 2003.

“Coming home was the best choice I could have made for myself and my two boys,” said Horton. “My children have thrived in school and on the ski hill and I have had some great career opportunities including the associate editor position at The Free Press in 2008. Coming back to the paper, although in a different capacity, is a dream come true for me. I am excited to once again be part of a dynamic team of people.”

Horton believes that being a team player and building strong relationships with the community is the driving force behind a successful publication.

“I can’t wait to get out and just start talking to people,” said Horton. “I love this town and the people in it make it the place I want to call home.”
