My Story

 

My passion for writing led me to a career in communications. I was born into a family of writers, broadcasters and publicists. I was a young adult before I fully realized what a specialized profession this is.

I like the variety of freelance work and I'm interested in how I can help you with you events, projects, media spokesperson training & writing for media, grant writing, social media, publicity other communications activities.   

I'm a communications professional with a background in film and media. I have produced and directed a series of short films, titled “Voices of the Land”, on Indigenous land use and cultural practices. I, also, produced a short music video on the Athabasca Dene for Neil Young's Honour the Treaties, four city, Canadian Tour.

I worked on the Winnipeg Aboriginal Film Festival several years as coordinator and communications contact.

I taught communications at Red River College, where I orginally got the training that led to my first radio job, at CJOB. I later worked in several radio stations across Canada.

I was director of the Manitoba office of Greenpeace Canada, throughout the 90s. I put my skills to use there doing media interviews, campaign activities and organizing workshops and public events.

I'm the current Executive Director of Boreal Action, a non-profit land and water defence group that works to support Indigenous led campaigns.
