based in vancouver, british columbia, i am a marketing professional specializing in the arts, entertainment and non-profit industries. an alumnae of capilano university’s esteemed arts & entertainment management program and the french immersion program at l’université du québec à montréal, i've wasted no time delving into the canadian arts— from the music scene, theatrical world, event management, and even dabbling in film.
currently, i am sales associate to the assistant director of sales (central & western us associations) at the vancouver convention centre and also provide support the special events sales manager and the trade/consumer shows sales manager. when i am not at vcc hq, i am most likely learning something new - i am a lifelong student and am a huge advocate of personal and professional development. what can i say, i was born curious! i am attending bcit part-time to further develop my skills in marketing communications; studying website design; learning spanish and attending numerous workshops.
previously, i was the marketer and executive assistant to the director of the employment and language programs of mosaic, a non-profit organization committed to welcoming and empowering immigrants, refugees and newcomers in canada. it is a cause that is extremely close to my heart; i love working with clients in getting to know them, helping them settle into their new lives in vancouver and helping them reach their goals to achieve their own canadian dream.
in addition to being curious, i also love meeting new people and making this planet a better place - volunteering is a fabulous way to do this! here's a sample of my volunteer work: i am a mentor to a number of newcomers looking for work and to practice their english, and i serve on a local electoral riding association to engage local residents to be informed and active in government and policy.
