I am the Social Media Manager at Students Offering Support and spend my time posting to Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn on behalf of SOS Head Office. I also oversee the social media presence of 30 university Chapters!
Prior to making the lateral move into social media, I worked in lifestyle television as a researcher, casting producer, and story editor. I also briefly worked as a consultant for a non-profit fundraising company where I researched/wrote grants and corporate proposals for clients such as Goodwill Industries, Ontario Track 3 Ski Association and the Japanese Canadian Cultural Center.
I have many framed pieces of paper on my wall, including an MFA in Documentary Media from Ryerson, BAH from Queen’s University, and Post-Graduate Certificate in Broadcast Journalism from Seneca College. This Spring I will add a Post-Degree Certificate in Social Media Marketing from George Brown College to the mix!
When I’m offline, I enjoy jazz, photography, sketching, knitting and spending time with my family, especially my baby niece and godson, who light up my world. And, like every respectable contributor to internet culture, I love cats!
