Nicole (Nikki) Cedrone is the Managing Editor of Community and Culture Events.

Nikki is not your traditional journalist. Her post-secondary studies was actually in Early Childhood Education where she spent the majority of her career. Over this period, it was a pleasure for her to be influenced by children, watching them grow and mature, and gather knowledge. Nikki truly enjoyed meeting and talking with the the parents and their diverse backgrounds and many community stories.

She then proceeded to take care of her own four children. With her own children now living independently, Nikki increased her community volunteerism. She focused on programs aimed to enhance Brampton’s community and the many positive aspects of living in an urban city with a country feel.

Nikki is passionate about telling “our” story and is excited to having the opportunity to champion Brampton’s voice.
