Let's Get Personal

.respond to every call that excites your spirit.

In High School, I was told daily that I talked too much and disrupted the class. But I couldn't help it! I was a social butterfly, as my teachers would call me. So I guess it's not that coincidental that many years later I have fallen into a career in Social Media! I absolutely love creating conversations around brands and having discussions that lead to long lasting relationships between them and their customers.

And lucky for me, my talkative nature makes me a perfect fit for the job!

...and I'm still trying to figure it out.

Here's what I know for sure:

+ I am a Content and Social Marketing Specialist

+ I am obsessed with Twitter and Instagram

+ I am living in Toronto and I love my city!

+ I am a New York Giants Football fan

+ I am funny (At least I think so!)

+ I am really into strength training and yoga

+ I am a bulldog lover

+ I am passionate, driven & ready to take the world by storm

Social Media is my Passion

After working in marketing for the past 5 years I realized my true passion was in Social Media. I thrive on building online relationships and engaging with people across many different platforms and communities. So I took a chance on something I LOVE to do...

...and I started my own business.

 

+ Social Media & Community Management

+ Social Strategy

I've been working as a content and social marketing specialist for over 5 years managing social media accounts and social strategies for small to medium sized businesses.

I got my start in 2010 at the Liberty Entertainment Group working as an intern in their marketing department. Twitter was just becoming popular and the constant stream of information and conversations drew me to the platform.

Most recently, over the past 3 years, I have provided my experience and expertise to the Ontario real estate industry, working exclusively with Empire Communities and TFN Realty, while offering support and advice to BILD GTA, Habitat for Humanity, as well as local BIA's and Councillors across the GTA and South Western Ontario.

I have spearheaded social and PR campaigns such as "A Sponsored Life at Beyond the Sea Condos" which was nominated for a BILD Award and landed Empire Communities on several major publications and blogs across Canada including the front page of the Toronto Star, a 2 minute segment on Global News at 6pm, The Sun, Metro and BuzzBuzzHome.com. I was also a finalist in the Social Media category at the National Home Building Awards, and was instrumental in helping Empire Communities win the Social Media All-Star Award at the Fortress Choice Awards for 2014.

I made an appearance on the Real Estate Talk Show as well as was interviewed in The Canadian Business Journal discussing why social media is so important to businesses, especially in Real Estate.

In my spare time, I volunteer for a Cystic Fibrosis fundraiser which has raised almost $100,000 for CF Canada, and I am the Social Media Strategist for the Italian Contemporary Film Festival.
