CJAM is excited to announce Alexandra Sellick (she/her) as our new Program Director! Read a bit more about her below & expect to hear her voice on CJAMs airwaves very soon.


Alex here! I am a recent graduate of the St. Clair Public Relations program but have been working in PR, social media and marketing for the past five years. I have enjoyed working with small businesses in Windsor and have had the opportunity to meet some great people who all share a common goal of improving and promoting Rose City. During my undergrad I worked as Arts Editor for The Lance so am no stranger to the CAW basement. in my spare time I volunteer for Bike Windsor Essex and would love to hear your bike lane complaints. Really looking forward to meeting everyone (perhaps virtually for now) at CJAM!
