I worked in finance for 17 years and during that time started blogging as a way to keep in touch with my family in BC. In 2008, I turned blogging into a full time career when I was headhunted by a marketing company startup.
My extensive work creating an engaged online community has provided me opportunities with top brands, ambassadorships, and as a media spokesperson.
Highlights from the last couple years include; being one of the driving forces behind BlissDom Canada 2010-2014, meeting Oprah, introducing my daughter to P!NK, waking up on my 42nd birthday with my face on billboards across Canada thanks to Dove, and ringing the NASDAQ bell with PayPal when they went public in 2015.
In 2012 I branched out on my own; creating unique and highly engaging Influencer campaigns for brands like Manulife Financial, The Grocery Foundation, and Microsoft Canada. This year I moved my social media marketing agency from Toronto to Kitchener to focus more on local small and medium sized businesses.
My hobbies include getting sucked into Pinterest, being a taxi service for my kids and drinking copious amounts of coffee.
