Since April 2015, I have worked as Senior Writer at The Canadian Women's Foundation, which funds community programs across Canada that help women and girls to move out of violence, out of poverty, and into confidence and leadership.

In this role, my writing and communications skills are focused on showing the need for and impact of the Foundation's work.

Major projects:

I am currently overseeing the redesign of the Foundation's website, which involves restructuring and re-writing content to align with strategic goals.

I have also worked on the Foundation's bi-annual magazine, SHE (see right). This entailed developing the theme and editorial lineup, writing impact stories, in-depth articles, and coordinating the development of infographics, illustrations and photography.
