SCROLL DOWN

Storyteller, Strategist, Communicator.


August17 - Copy.JPG

I am an energetic, versatile and ambitious Communicator who connects people + dots and delivers creative projects that humanize the business and drive the bottom line. I have a knack for telling stories and flexing my strategic muscles to influence positive change.

Hailing from the Corporate realm, I currently craft narratives for audiences around the world and partner with leaders to deliver integrated campaigns as part of Teekay’s global Communications team.

In my spare time, I help fellow communicators connect, grow their careers and give back to the profession as the Director of Career Development on the IABC/BC Board.

My Work


and how I go about it

My Work


and how I go about it

In my world, no two days are ever the same. You can find me project managing and producing video shoots in far corners of the globe one day, curating content for web/social the next, running incident management tabletop drills thereafter, advising executives on communication initiatives in between, and coaching colleagues on personal branding after that. Though my work spans from to brand management, to digital, to crisis communications and public affairs, my projects tend to gravitate towards these three areas:

STORYTELLING

Stories bring people together and help us make sense of the world around us. Well-crafted, authentic stories can do much more. They can touch hearts, change perceptions and build cultures. This is what I strive for, regardless of medium, with the help of curiosity and empathy.

STRATEGY

The sweet spot lives at the intersection of the ‘why’ and the ‘how,’ guided by asking the right questions and a dash of aspiration. Getting there can be some of the most trying - but also the most impactful and rewarding - work. And I love a good challenge.

INNOVATION

I’m not one to settle for the status quo and I’m fueled by the endless possibilities on the other side of ‘what if.’ It’s about finding new solutions to problems old and new. It begins with experimentation, implementing what works and learning from what doesn’t.
