Government, non-profit, social enterprise
Prior to joining Peak, I’ve had experience working in both international and local communications agencies. With an events heavy background, I’ve been involved with conferences such as the 2014 OMG Social Media conference; trade shows across the lower mainland; and the annual Rogers Santa Claus Parade.

Before any experience in the industry and while I was still a student, I tried to teach myself media relations by reading articles on Forbes and other business magazines. My first media hit was with Tammy Moyer on News1130’s morning show – a thrill that I’ve been chasing since!

Furthest flung place you’ve lived?
One of my most memorable travel stories has to do with accidentally stepping on sea urchins in Thailand – it is probably the most physically painful experience I’ve had so far (trust me, it hurts!).
