I have spent the last 17 years in marketing, sales and design. As Director of Marketing for Honeypot, a 360 digital marketing agency, I connected digital marketing strategy to the sales process using Marketing Automation (MAP) and Customer Relationship Management (CRM) software for key B2B and B2C clients.

For 8 years as a Marketing Manager for Home Hardware Stores Ltd, I focused on branding, digital marketing strategy, and retail store design. Prior roles include Sales and Design Consultant across North America for Bramante Studio, Graphic Designer for the Region of Waterloo, Online Course Developer for the University of Waterloo, and Manager of Computer Services for FedEx Kinko’s.

I take pride in my ability to solve problems using creativity and innovation, leadership skills, and technological know-how.
