Aloha! I’m originally from Hawaii but I now live in beautiful Victoria, British Columbia.
By day, I’m an established communications strategist with more than 10 years of experience working with B.C. tech startups, national Canadian nonprofits, and global fitness e-commerce and education brands.
By night, I’m a certified personal trainer and health coach whose wellness advice has been featured in national media like Men’s Journal, Eating Well, Teen Vogue, MSN Health, and USA Today.
My years of experience in strategic communications, print and digital marketing, multimedia storytelling (including helping to direct numerous video shoots), fundraising and media relations may seem very varied.
But one thread that ties all my experiences together is my love for:
- Turning challenges into opportunities;
- Building collaboration among teams;
- Developing, testing and executing ideas;
- And bridging the gap between startup-style design thinking and innovation, and more traditional business practices and organizational structures.
