“I joined AMA Toronto as an Event Manager 2 ½ years ago. I was new to Canada and wanted to understand the market here. After one year I was promoted to Event Director managing a team of two. I’ve run both virtual and in-person events and connected and worked with amazing people ranging from inspiring marketing legends to new graduates. I’ve expanded my network and applied my teamwork and leadership skills to my day job.”

“I joined AMA as a student board member of BC’s collegiate chapter. When I moved to Toronto to work, I joined AMA Toronto’s board to engage in the local community. I’ve held a variety of roles including President and now VP Finance. Volunteering has helped shape my skills as a leader and marketer and AMA Toronto’s broad community of brand, agency and supplier members has helped me gather perspectives from all sides of the industry.”
