At age 11, I obsessively dreamed about working in the National Hockey League and kept reams of paper statistics on every hockey player from every league I could find. Fast-forward to my mid-20s and I received my first official gig as a freelance NHL reporter. This helped me develop my networking, communications, writing, and public relations skills, which I use today.
Through my skills as a virtual publicist, social media professional, writer, and marketing and transmedia strategist, I make digital media work for the small business and entrepreneur, especially those working in entertainment, media, sports, or high profile industries. Many of the clients come from all corners of the globe, such as the United States, Canada, Sweden, United Kingdom, China, Switzerland, and more.
My 20+ years of direct media experience include working in television, print, radio, and Internet media. I've written and published 14 books; edited, ghosted, and project managed over 100 books; edited and project managed the creation and revamp of numerous websites; and have been published internationally in traditional and digital articles, newspapers, newsletters, and blogs.
I've worked both in front and behind the traditional and digital microphone strategizing, producing, and managing media, public relations, and marketing campaigns. I've also been a member of the Canadian Association of Professional speakers and delivered keynotes, facilitation, and training to schools, universities, teachers’ conferences, speaking associations, and career development organizations.
Fun fact: I was the first woman to ever headman a football conference in Canada and was also the Public Relations Director for a California Angels Triple A team.
One of my greatest strengths, besides strong literacy skills, is that I'm good at creating media and a digital footprint for new and seasoned businesses or projects.
