As a Concordia University journalism graduate, my first interest has always been the art of writing. Like many 20-something year olds who have watched too many episodes of Sex and the City, I always wanted to write for a fashion magazine.During my studies at Concordia however, I learned about objectivity and the importance of credibility, and these notions have shaped the type of Fashion Journalist that I want to be. For this reason, I am pursuing a Masters of Arts in Fashion at Ryerson University. While pursuing my MA, I work as a freelance fashion & lifestyle writer. Most recently, I have worked for media such as the The Montreal Gazette, ypnexthome.ca and cultmontreal.com. These gigs have given me the opportunity to interview Montreal fashion insiders like Joseph Ribkoff and Travis Taddeo. I also write my own weekly column for Renters Guide, a free pick-up distributed across Canada. In my column called Rental Rantings, I explore (all in good fun) common misconceptions about renters and daily struggles renters experience.
Besides writing, a 2-year run as Social Media Coordinator for Concordia's chapter of Journalists for Human Rights also peaked my interest in online media. This positions led me to a summer job at Pfizer Canada where I did a research project on how to implement social media in the challenging field of pharmaceuticals. During my undergraduate studies, I continued to work part-time in their communications department where I helped manage their social media platforms and intranet as well as create editorial and video content for various communications.
