TELL US A BIT ABOUT YOUR CAREER TO DATE, WHAT LEAD YOU TO WORKING IN AN AGENCY?
I finished my diploma at BCIT just over 15 years ago in the Marketing Communications Program. Since then, I have worked in a few different industries: media sales, casting for film and tv, and within the non-profit sector. I am so excited to grow at H18 as I have always had an interest in producing and project managing and I love the creative opportunity that comes with being part of an agency.
QUICK! WORD ASSOCIATION, WHICH WORDS BEST DESCRIBE YOU?
Fun-loving, inspired, goal oriented, loyal.
WHAT ARE YOU MOST PROUD OF?
The strength of my relationship with my family. I am very close with my two older sisters, nieces and my parents. It is a tight knit family. We all live in Vancouver, so I really appreciate how often I get to spend quality time with them.
YOU’VE GOT A GREAT SMILE, WHAT GETS YOU LAUGHING?
Making fun of myself, not taking myself too seriously, not sweating the small stuff.
WHERE WOULD YOU LIKE YOUR CAREER TO LEAD, WHAT ARE YOUR ASPIRATIONS?
I would love to be a senior producer or project manager and be able to work on large broadcast projects. Whether promotional, commercials or radio ads – this is where my passion lies.
TELL US YOUR BIGGEST PET PEEVE, WHAT MAKES YOU TICK?
When people have a lack of respect as well as mismanagement of time.. Said with a giggle.
WHAT WAS YOUR LAST NETFLIX OBSESSION?
Suits, I was hooked!
H18: Pre or post Meghan and Prince Harry?
Pre- I actually haven’t followed their relationship but I do really like her!
ARE YOU A CAT OR A DOG PERSON?
I am a dog person, although I did have cats growing up; it was our two dogs that I was always obsessed with. I will definitely be getting another dog very soon.
DESCRIBE YOUR PERFECT DAY SPENT IN OUR BEAUTIFUL CITY!
I would likely go for brunch at Forage on Robson and a nice walk on the seawall, maybe drive up to Whistler for dinner and spend the night. Basically my perfect day revolves around good food and being outside.
VIDEOS CLEARLY MAKE YOU HAPPY, WHAT IS IT THAT YOU LOVE ABOUT PRODUCING AND WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR FAVOURITE PROJECT TO DATE?
I love the story telling aspect and seeing the project from initial conception and storyboarding through to the end and knowing I had a part in that creative process. My favourite project was probably when I did the casting for a very sweet Oreo commercial! I love working with kids!
FAVOURITE CONCERT YOU HAVE EVER ATTENDED?
My first concert, hmm… OH! MC Hammer. In Penticton, I think I was underage, maybe a teenager, back when hammer pants were all the rage. I got to tag along with my older sister, it was awesome.
WHY WAS PROJECT MANAGEMENT YOUR NEXT MOVE?
I love being organized and managing a project from start to finish. I am very detail oriented and excited to work on a range of projects. It keeps the day interesting, seeing the creative process from a different side of things.
IF YOU COULD TRAVEL ANYWHERE IN THE WOLD WHERE WOULD IT BE?
The Amalfi Coast!! It’s something I need to do soon, the ocean and little villages sound amazingly beautiful.
WHERE HAS BEEN YOUR FAVOURITE DESTINATION SO FAR?
Australia, traveling the East Coast – starting in Sydney to Cairns and then back to Melbourne, surfing in Byron Bay was the highlight.
DESCRIBE YOUR WORKSPACE, DO YOU PREFER QUIET OR LISTENING TO MUSIC, WILL WE FIND COFFEE CUPS EVERYWHERE OR TIDY, FOLDERS OR LOOSE PAPERS?
Bit of all of the above, folders/papers, coffee cups, quiet but use my headphones to watch tutorials. Organized chaos.
TELL US SOMETHING ABOUT YOURSELF THAT MAY SURPRISE US!
I played soccer for 23 years; well actually you may have already know that! Let’s see, what else.. A strange thing about me is that I take my two pillows everywhere I go. I have this obsession with my pillows. I manage to cram them into my bag on every trip I take.
SOUNDS LIKE YOU CONSIDER YOURSELF A BIT OF A FOODIE, FAVOURITE RESTAURANT YOU’VE EVER BEEN TO?
Oh boy, I have so many! Probably Maenam in Kits because I love Thai. Can I have two?! Fable, farm to table! I love the fresh food!
