- Not for Profit
I first received a diploma in public relations at Algonquin College. I then worked for several non-profits at a marketing agency and now in the public sector.
The marketing/communications field also involves taking lots of professional development to keep up to date with current trends - for example, when I first started working TikTok wasn't invented yet. Now I have find creative ways to promote to reach younger people using communications channels like TikTok.
