Content Strategy: branded, sponsored and native content

 At TC Media/Quebecor, I ran the content marketing department which included managing projects. This included developing content strategy, sourcing freelancers, assigning work, creating a work back schedule for them, editing and managing invoices.
I also had the opportunity to work on sponsored, branded and native content for multiple clients.
Site and Community building
When I was at Global News, I was tasked to manage the Global News Contributor network. This was based on the Forbes model. After speaking to Lewis Dvorkin, I put together the site architecture, outlined the contracts, created the guidelines, sourced the contributors and developed editorial and project calendars. I managed the entire project from working with the developers to the posting schedule.I also launch, edit and maintain blogs for companies. I planned, managed and launched the Small Business blog for Marketwired. I launched it in June 2012. Most of the content is original to the blog thanks to a core group of freelancers.


Extremely well-versed in CP style. Experience editing newsletters, manuscripts, program books, advertorial material, magazines, web and print content and websites. I edit for style, grammar, spelling and clarity. I’m very good at removing the trash.

Social Media

Many years of experience with Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+ and Pinterest but I would never call myself a guru. Contact me for community management, content creation and campaign planning.
