Our Team

Zena Williams
I have worked for Black Press since 1992 starting my career at the Vernon Morning Star and then transferring to Vancouver Island where I worked at the Campbell River Mirror & Comox Valley Record. Kimberley became my home in 2015 where I continue as Publisher for the Cranbrook and Kimberley newspapers. Some of my favourite things include biking down the Rails to Trails from the top of the Kimberley Alpine Resort to the bridge heading to Cranbrook and walking my dogs at Bootleg Gap Golf. My husband and I also enjoy the many fabulous eateries in the Kootenays and looking up at the spectacular Fisher Peak.

Carolyn Grant
I started in the newspaper business at a small independent paper in Northern Ontario – back in the cut and paste days. I have been editor of the Kimberley Bulletin for 17 years and I still look forward to coming to work every day. I love living in a small town — I love the people, the friendliness, the smiles and waves. I love meeting people and telling their stories. I am a political nerd and avid reader of news from all over. I have three grown children — all who went to school here in Kimberley before moving on. I have worked with the volunteer group Kimberley FOCUS for the past six years, raising funds for Kimberley causes and people.

Corey Bullock
Corey Bullock is a multimedia journalist and writer who grew up in Burlington, Ontario. She spent the past five years living in Vancouver, and in August of 2016 she decided to call Kimberley home.
Bullock attended the print, broadcast, and online media studies program at the Humber College Institute of Design and Technology, as well as the theatre production program at Studio 58 – Langara College. She has Interned for CHCH News and Global BC, and has experience as a reporter, editor, photographer, and blogger for various other organizations. Although Bullock has not lived in Kimberley for very long, she has quickly become enamoured with the small town charm and community aspect that makes Kimberley such a desirable place to live.

Advertising Sales
Nicole Koran
I have worked for the Kimberley Bulletin since August of 2002, I started in circulation and moved into sales three years later. I was born and raised in Kimberley and moved to Calgary for a brief five years before relocating with my husband and two sons back “home.” I love to camp, walk the trails and enjoy the outdoors. I also spend a lot of time volunteering for minor hockey, minor ball and the Kimberley Dynamiters. You could say I have a passion for sports!
