Irene Seto

They say that good things come in small packages and Irene is no exception. What she lacks in stature, she more than makes up for in personality and laughter. A born-and-bred Calgarian, this Western girl takes the adage of “work hard, play hard” to heart, always on-the-go and finding the most awesome stories to share with C.I.A. readers. As Managing Editor, she acts as a jill-of-all-trades juggling a variety of responsibilities including writing, editing, social media and more. In her (little) spare time, you can find Irene stocking up on more shoes for her closet, enjoying a pint (or two) with friends and cycling around on her love, Minty the bicycle. If you give her mini donuts or kettle corn, she will be your friend for life.
