I’m a generalist.
I plan, create, research, budget, schedule, connect, build, write, present and deliver. Not necessarily in that order.
I think the power in a generalist is ability to see the big picture, make the connections, troubleshoot the problems and get things done. With never-ending curiosity.
So far, I have over two decades of experience in a variety of roles – from managing national advertising campaigns to coordinating the development of websites. With a degree in agriculture I started out working with consultants on feasibility studies and research projects. Then came some marketing projects which, in turn, led to project management for communications companies, advertising agencies, corporations and not-for-profits. I am interested in environment and conservation and that curiosity was channeled into a column in the Calgary Herald called Wild Calgary several years ago. I want to spend more time in that field, researching and writing and working on projects that will help change the world.
