Our Team

Madeleine Bragg
Madi has worked in publishing since receiving her Advertising Administration degree in Ontario many years ago. She started at Maclean’s Magazine, but was quickly drawn to the mountains where she lived and played before settling back into a career in publishing at the Nelson Star. She has called Fernie home since 2010 and when she’s not working, you can usually find her out on the trails or elbows deep in her garden.

Paige Mueller
Paige has been a part of The Free Press since November, 2019 when she came on board as editor. She has a degree in journalism and English literature from Carleton University in Ottawa and a deep passion for storytelling. With experience living, working and telling stories all over the world, she’s happy to be back in this little slice of mountain paradise.

Soranne Floarea
Soranne is a reporter with the Free Press. Born and raised in Ontario, she ventured out West after graduating from Western University in 2018. Spontaneously moving to Fernie in January of 2020, she has since fallen in irrevocable love with the Elk Valley. When not in office, Soranne explores the mountains via skiing, hiking, or rock climbing.
