Born and raised in the Ottawa Valley, I came to Ottawa to take Marketing at the University of Ottawa and have been here ever since. I’m creative and love all things marketing, so being the head of marketing for a marketing company, and also a promotional consultant for clients is like heaven! In my spare time I enjoy golf, pretending to play guitar, my dogs, and travelling! I also have a philanthropic side, and any chance I can help make a ‘dent in the universe’ I do, whether it’s supporting local charities,building homes in Central America, or growing a moustache for Movember.
I started at Festival Promotions as the office receptionist and bookkeeper on a career path that included sales assistant and soon expanded to inside sales rep and eventually office manager. I guess I liked what I saw because, to quote a once-famous ad, “I bought the company.”
I am now the proud owner of a company in which I strongly believe (why else would I have bought it?). My experience with the company from the bottom up has given me valuable insight into the industry. As president of the company, my philosophy is to provide outstanding customer service and to develop strong relationships – we do that by making it fun to meet our clients’ marketing needs.My other loves include the outdoors. I am an avid gardener and golfer, and I'm also an Ottawa Senators fan.
Whatever your marketing needs, we have a fantastic talented and creative staff to help you every step of the way.
After completing a BA in Economics and Business in 1986, where I helped run special events and concerts, I started Festival Promotions. I enjoy working on marketing projects with clients. There are always logo’d products to fit any marketing challenge. It’s great to be part of my client’s success time and time again. I have been a part of many successful campaigns and have extensive knowledge on what products work with which budgets for which target markets. It is all about respect and fun times. Have your best day ever!
I graduated from Mount Allison University in 2009 with a B.A in Geography and Environmental Studies. After completing my B.A I moved to Ottawa, ON in hopes of utilizing my geographic and environmental skills. This is what brought me to Festival Promotions. My past working experiences taught me that I love marketing and building strong relationships with individuals and businesses while promoting the benefits of sustainable products. I knew that Festival Promotions would be a perfect fit because the company and I both value and believe in the benefits of sustainable products. I am happy to be a part of my client’s success while having fun throughout the whole process.
I'm a hometown Ottawa girl and mother to a 13 year old son, Kyler. I studied admin at Algonquin and graduated with honours and have over 15 years experience in customer service. When I'm not meticulously ensuring every order is delivered and perfect I enjoy snowboarding, gardening, camping and occasionally driving Lamborghinis!
