Portfolio

Here are a few samples of my writing, graphic design, and marketing work. For a complete resume, visit my profile on LinkedIn.

LIBRARY PROMOTION

At the St. Thomas Public Library, I developed and designed promotional themes for library events and programs, providing a consistent look and feel for all program elements. These included posters, flyers, bookmarks, electronic monitor slides, advertisements, and more. I also designed the 130th anniversary logo and theme and laid the groundwork for further development. Other activities included the design of the monthly library newsletter, book display posters, and library signage.

In addition, I have written articles for the St. Thomas/Elgin Weekly News, promoting events and activities at local libraries and museums, including Elgin County Museum, Elgin County Archives, and the St. Thomas Public Library.

 

FREELANCE WRITING

I have written for Natural Landscape Magazine, Relish Elgin, CultureHome.com, STEGH Foundation newsletter Heartbeat, and the St. Thomas/Elgin Weekly News, including a monthly column for Elgin This Month magazine.

 

NEWSPAPER EDITING AND WRITING

As editor of the St. Thomas/Elgin Weekly News and Elgin This Month magazine, I reported on community activities, interviewing sources, writing articles, taking photographs, editing freelance writers’ work, and laying out weekly newspaper pages.

 

CORPORATE COMMUNICATIONS AND MARKETING

As a marketing and communications specialist for a variety of businesses and not-for-profit organizations, I planned marketing strategies, designed brand identities, and managed various projects that built awareness, communicated organizational aims, and promoted programs and events.
