Shaping a Positive Future for Campbell River

I'm a Marketing and Communications professional, with a background in graphic design and multimedia. I work for Destination Campbell River here in my home town, where I work with our valued tourism stakeholders to market our beautiful city to visitors from all over the world. 

I take great pride in being an active member of my community. I am the Vice-President of YPCR, and act as the Marketing Advisor to many local non-profit organizations including the Campbell River Youth Soccer Association. Through my volunteering, I have created numerous brand identities, advertising campaigns and marketing collateral.

A firm believer in the power of life-long learning, I am always looking for new and exciting ways to grow my mind. Whether it's taking business courses online, completing brand identities through my freelance agency Boleyn Media, participating in community workshops or Reading Circles, I find by involving myself in other areas, I can further develop skills which benefit other areas of my life.

I try to attend just about every event the YPCR hosts, as I find it is a dynamic group of like-minded individuals from all areas and backgrounds. I believe it is valuable to build relationships with key individuals in my community, and find that connecting with established professionals in similar industries to my own can be an important part of developing a meaningful career.
