Thanks For Visiting!
To tell you a little about me…
I was born and raised in Powell River, British Columbia, at the northern tip of the Sunshine Coast. Many of my relatives still live there, so I visit there quite often. A few hours of driving plus a couple of ferry rides, and you are far away from the city in a secluded little coastal town with plenty of fresh lakes, hiking trails, salt water fishing, and the most beautiful sunsets in the world (in my humble opinion).
A couple of years ago, after completing my studies at Camosun College in Victoria, I packed up my things and flew to Fort Lauderdale, Florida to seek out a new adventure. From there I started working as a stewardess on Private and Charter Motor Yachts–and what I intended to be one year of work and travel, turned into four. I traveled the world, following the sun as much as possible, and earned my keep by catering to some very high-end clientèle.
I returned to Vancouver in December of 2006, to be closer to my family and friends, and to find a new career in Marketing. For the past several years, I have worked in various different roles, in both conventional and new media marketing – everything from tradeshow coordination, to social media strategy, public relations, community management, and email marketing.
More recently, I have specialized in marketing automation, conversion optimization, A/B testing, and content strategy. I helped drive user growth and revenue at Hootsuite Media, and was there through the company’s hyper-growth stage and assisted in growing the user base from 3 million to 12 million users.
In February 2015, I launched a side project with my siblings–Powtown Post–a website designed to shine a positive light on our hometown of Powell River, BC. We have organically grown the fanbase from 0-1300 followers in just a few short months – and it continues to grow!
I have a bit of a unique background, and a lot of stories to tell. This blog is a place to tell those personal and professional stories, and anything else I see fit.
Go ahead and take a look, and please don’t be too shy to leave a comment!
