Experience

Summary

I began my academic internship with The Next 36 in Summer 2014, and was hired on full time as Marketing Coordinator halfway through. Since then, I've been lucky to work with a lean, dynamic team transforming the face of Canadian entrepreneurship.

Work history

Marketing Coordinator
On a small marketing team of two, I wear many hats. I am responsible for managing our social media and web presence, curating and creating content for web and newsletters, coordinating recruitment events, and designing marketing collateral.
Camp Counsellor
Worked on a team of 4-6 counsellors at UCV's Time Travellers overnight camp for two summers. Became proficient in directing plays, singing temperance songs, historical storytelling, and performing triage.
