Coordinating across teams, she is responsible for the communications arm of our campaigns on a range of national and global issues, helping to drive change and mobilize supporters in the most effective way possible. 

She joined the Internet Society after an extensive career as a national radio and print journalist, documentary filmmaker, and communication & marketing specialist for various Canadian based and International organizations.

Hailing from Ottawa Ontario Canada, she began her career as a storyteller at 16 where she ran her own monthly magazine.

After graduating she moved on to work for national radio as a news and documentary reporter as well as producer. She moved into communications and marketing both at the Federal Government and private sector level where she received awards from the International Association of Business Communicators for work in online communications and media relations.
