About Me

I am a freelance writer specializing in lifestyle content informed by my love of fashion and shopping, and my PR background also means that I can write impactful media releases.
I’ve been blogging since 2012 under the moniker and have recently started a joint influencer project called where I create, write, and produce social content and videos about fashion, recipes, and the best places to visit in Hamilton and beyond.
Most recently I have enjoyed working as the producer and researcher on a monthly parenting and youth development podcast called for Muskoka Woods.

Work Experience

My most recent work in podcasting research and production leverages all my past experience to help craft interview questions and guest bios that have helped elevate the Muskoka Woods: Shaping Our World podcast hosted by Chris Thompson, CEO of Muskoka Woods. I then write the blog posts to accompany each episode.
