Even a daunting journey begins with a single step.
At the age of 27, after working in the forestry industry since graduating high school, I felt the need to pursue a new path in life.
After exploring my options, I landed on a two-year New Media Communications Program which coincided with the start of the dot-com era.
I went from barely being able to turn on a computer, to instructing in the same program right after graduating. I took to it like a fish in water, and haven’t looked back.
I have since gone on to complete my Communications Degree, and balanced that theory, by completing many technical certificates and compiling over 15 years of hands-on experience in the industry.
I am now pursuing a Masters Degree in Public Relations as a cap stone to my education.
I am an experienced communications professional that provides a unique balance of creativity and strategy. I have a diverse background in many fields, which allows me to tackle any communication or marketing project. My relaxed, yet focused approach, has been a defining management style that brings out the best in my teams.
