How I got here
I grew up in spent skiing and snowboarding in the mountains of south eastern BC and was thrilled to graduate with my communications degree and land a role doing communications for a ski resort upon graduating. After a couple of years cutting my teeth at Panorama Mountain Village, I settled into Whistler Blackcomb’s public relations team for over eight years. My deep experience in the ski and bike industry has helped to establish me as the “go-to” public relations freelancer for a wide variety of travel tourism organizations.

My secret spot in Whistler
I love getting into the trees at Whistler Blackcomb but I can’t tell you about my secret spots there….my new favourite place in the Village is the Audain Art Museum. There is always something new to see with world class exhibits rotating through, and the permanent collections of First Nations masks and Emily Carr originals are outstanding.

When I’m not working…
You can find me with my fiancé poking around our hobby farm in Pemberton, Bandit Farms. We raise chickens and ducks for eggs, and have a pig and gardens, so there is always something to do outside; a nice contrast from the hours I spend in front of a computer screen!
