Biography

I spent five years both employed with and directing a range of entrepreneurial ventures. These included a publishing company (producing two Canadian bestsellers), a series of national youth worker conferences and a national newspaper for Christian youth workers.

I then invested four years of consulting in the charitable sector at a local law firm, which was launching new fundraising technology. As part of the marketing and service team, I helped the company launch two successful fundraising tools. At this time, I also led Canada’s first Youth Venture program, a global initiative providing training and funding for students to start new businesses.

For the last four years, I have focused on the technology sector, leading an app development agency and growing a digital marketing agency, Jelly Marketing. We work with various local, national and global brands and we are the co-creators of the Canadian Internet Marketing Conference.
