I am a digital strategist and tourism public relations professional living and working in Victoria, British Columbia.

Before this, I worked in the public relations department at The Butchart Gardens, developing and implementing their online marketing into the broader marketing and communications strategy, set up their digital presence (website and Weibo) in China, and led the development of the digital strategy for the Garden Tourism Coalition Society of British Columbia.
