Here is a zoomed out view of my career experience to help introduce myself;

 

 
 

Learning behaviour and teaching/education

I grew up in Australia with a passion for education and a curiosity for the psychology of learning and behaviour. I completed a Bachelor of Education & Bachelor of Science at the University of the Sunshine Coast, QLD in 2009.

Global experiential marketing and corporate hospitality

I lived in Canada & the UK from 2009-2013 working in experiential marketing with Coca Cola at the Olympic Games (Vancouver 2010, London 2012) as well as countless other experiential marketing campaigns for global brands including Nintendo & Lindt Chocolate.

 
 

Tourism operations and guest experience

In the odd years outside the Olympics, I developed a career working across Canada, the USA, France and the UK in tourism operations & improving guest experiences. I worked for ski resorts & chalets, holiday camps & recreational centres, learning what customers want from a tourism experience, & how they communicate their satisfaction or otherwise with tourism operators .

 
 

Digital marketing and social media

I joined the Government of British Columbia's communications team in Victoria, BC in 2016 and rose quickly through the ranks serving on both the Social Media and Advertising/ Marketing teams in the Government Communications and Public Engagement office. There I handled strategic planning and delivery of marketing & communications programs, including digital media buying, engagement programs, campaign analysis and research.

 
 

Loyalty programs and travel consulting

Beginning as a digital content writer for a successful travel media subscription, I became an expert in the user experience for online travel booking using airline loyalty points. I developed this expertise into a consultancy providing strategy and travel advice to small businesses and individuals and I have since spoken twice at Canada’s largest conference on loyalty points and miles,
