After earning a BA in English from York University, I taught English in South Korea for two years. Although I enjoyed my time as an educator, I left the land of kimchi and K-pop to pursue a career in communications and public relations.

A 20-hour flight, a postgraduate certificate and an internship later, I became a driven communications professional. Now, I spend my days as a public relations assistant at the Trebas Institute. I also write and edit copy for two online media outlets. My portfolio offers a selection of my writing as well as a snapshot of my public relations skills.
