Street Cred:

I managed the Canadian Olympic Team’s digital fan experience in the lead up to and during Sochi 2014. During this time (compared to London 2012) we saw exponential growth within our channels, reach, engagement and registrations. See my portfolio for examples of my work.

I continue to lead the Canadian Olympic Team digital fan experience 24/7/365 through social media programs, digital innovation projects, olympia.ca content and partner digital and social initiatives. I’ve also done this for BMO, OREA and lululemon athletica. LinkedIn will tell you the full story.

Why work in Sport?

My passion for sport runs deep. Before my world revolved around connection, I was primarily a figure skater. I had the privilege of being on Canada’s National Team for eight years. In that time I became a four-time national champion and world bronze medallist in Synchronized Skating. Yes, I have a medal that says I’m third in the world at something yet my competitiveness still dreams (wishes?) it was gold. These days, I hit the ice rink, play beach volleyball and spend my summers at the ballpark as an uber-passionate Blue Jays fan. Beer and cracker-jacks, anyone?
