Since moving to British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley in 2007, I have worked with the wine industry as a cellar worker, in the wine shop, as a marketing manager, and a few other not so glamorous roles. I have a keen understanding of what it takes to get those delicious wines on our tables.
As a freelance writer and communications specialist, my work can be seen on bottle labels and in travel & tourism publications.
Outside of the wine industry I have experience with federal and provincial governments, private industry, a race track, and even a chartered bank. Through each of these I have learned the value of clear and concise messaging.
Story has been part of my life since I can remember. From writing and delivering my first speech in the sixth grade (on the life of a baseball) to having my words read on national television (The Amazing Race Canada), communications has always been at the foundation.
When I’m not writing I can be found exploring the Okanagan, rebuilding a track car that needs way more work than I bargained for, or spoiling an adorable little rescue cat named Tippy.
