View Profile

My English Literature degree provided so many skills that lead me to a successful career in the publishing industry, including researching, writing, communicating effectively, working collaboratively, and thinking independently.  I started as an assistant to a publisher, and eventually ended up in advertising sales, first inside and then outside. When publishing began the shift to digital, I jumped on board, working in digital ad sales for, at the time, Canada's largest portal, Canoe.ca.  In working my way up in the company, I eventually achieved a position of Director of Online Digital Sales for all of Ontario for over 75 newspaper sites, requiring extensive travel, the opportunity to write and provide training, and the opportunity for management experience, including having a staff of 11.
