Communications

Need a nose for news?

Before my advertising career, I earned a high honours degree in journalism and political science from Carleton University in Ottawa, studied financial reporting, worked in communications at the head office of Canada Post Corporation, interned at CFRA News Radio, volunteered writing constituent correspondence in a cabinet minister’s office on Parliament Hill and was editor of two trade magazines. I was trained not just to tell stories people care about, but also to sniff them out.

To me, good communication — be it PR, advertising, marketing, social media, a first date — begins with putting yourself in your audience’s shoes. Listening. Then talking with, not at.

If you like this approach, I hope you’ll talk with me. I’m listening!
