TELEVSION REPORTER/HOST: Whether backstage with Bono, live from the red carpet, or holding politicians’ feet to the fire, for me it’s always been about finding that fresh angle, asking the right questions, and delivering an engaging story. I’ve done hundreds of interviews with celebrities, newsmakers, royalty and regular folk, covering everything from news and entertainment to lifestyle content.
I’ve produced, reported and anchored for 5 networks including CTV and Citytv, and (this is where I brag a bit) was given a Toronto Sun Readers Choice award for Favourite Entertainment TV Reporter two years in a row. I thrive in the live environment and have hosted many big broadcast events including the TIFF Star! Schmooze, and “Live! At the Genies”. I’ve also worked with many businesses and organizations that understand the value of good storytelling. I pull from my journalism experience to deliver the content a brand needs, whether it be in writing, through video or by podcast. I will cast, coach, cajole, create and even deliver a cameo if needed.
MODERATOR/EMCEE: I can frequently be found on stage (or a video conference) acting as Emcee or Moderator for a variety of live and virtual events. I’m equally comfortable in a room full of accountants, media executives, female entrepreneurs or philanthropists. For a list of testimonials, see SERVICES.
MEDIA/PRESENTATION SKILLS COACH: When I’m not creating, I’m coaching professionals and future stars who want to BeWellSpoken , whether it be on stage, in the boardroom or in front of the camera. With the right tools and direction, I believe everyone is capable of being an outstanding speaker!
My husband and I are co-authors of Scratch Your Buts Seven Words That Get in The Way, a guide to a becoming a better communicator.
I have served as an instructor for Centennial College, The Centre for Creative Communications, and received the Alumni of Distinction Award. (yep bragged again)
