What I do on any given day will vary depending on the situation. My key activities are all related to online strategy and maintaining good relationships with our clients:

I work on a team of five people and cross collaborate with our team in the US on a regular basis. When I need to make decisions and recommendations to clients, colleagues and team members, I make sure this is based on sound data. I collect this data by doing an analysis of the issue or process. I use my background and skills in math and analytics when doing analyses. These are two skill areas that have helped me thrive in my role.

I had a zig zag career path, taking risks and seeking new opportunities. I started studying International Economics at university. After graduation I moved to the UK where I fell into a digital marketing job for an ISP. I worked at this for a while and then moved back to Canada to pursue a career in Sports Management. After several years in that area I decided to go back to the digital space. My broad background and experience helped me get to my current position. I live by the motto, “if you don't risk anything, you risk even more”.
