Diploma of College Studies (DEC) - Pure and Applied Sciences

Champlain College Lennoxville (Cejep)

Sept 2012 - May 2014

‍‍‍Throughout my four years at uOttawa, I participated in the Jeux du Commerce as an athlete and volunteer representing Telfer. Like any other university graduate, I participated in many successful (and a few less successful) group projects. The most rewarding of which was a marketing campaign for the Royal Ottawa Foundation for Mental health, which won my gr‍‍‍oup and I a spot among the three finalists in the Michel Cloutier Marketing Competition. After four years of hard work and fun times, I'm proud to say I graduated with a CGPA of 8.06 (Magna Cum Laude).

During my two year degree at Champlain, I juggled school and sports while I played for the men's basketball team, making it to the provincial playoffs in both years, and winning the team award as co-captain in my second year. With multiple two-hour practices and a game each week, I learned to discipline myself and prioritize school work in order to keep my average above 80%.

‍‍‍Stu‍‍‍dent Procurement Advisor

Elections Canada‍‍‍

Sept 2016 - Jan 2016‍‍‍

Talk about a new environment for me. While I tried to learn about all the different types of contracts, amendments, and rules for procurement, I developed some serious organizational and prioritization skills. Whether it was drafting a contract, leading an RFP, or preparing for the Supplier Engagement Days, everything had a time sensitive deadline. Some of my tasks included:

  • Drafting and revising complicated contracts and amendments with support from my team.
  • Leading my own RFPs, ensuring timely and professional communication with external stakeholders.
  • Researching change management practices and creating a guide to facilitate changing procurement processes and guidelines for the team.

Marketing Assistant‍‍‍

The Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA)

Jan 2016‍‍‍ - May‍‍‍ 2016

My first real introduction to marketing. Working at CREA was an awesome experience, and not just because we played soccer every Friday. I was able to take on new cha‍‍‍llenges, learn from experienced marketers, and It was the first time I realized how much I truly enjoyed writing content. Some of my tasks included:

  • Collaborating with multiple teams to coordinate CREA’s appearance at events; researching event venues, providing representatives with key information, and shipping materials on time.
  • Creating content for training courses, web pages, infographics, and various other initiatives.
  • Maintained and updated the content and navigation (UX) of the Realtorlink intranet.

I'm eager and ready to learn all that I can about digital marketing.

With experience and knowledge around numerous digital marketing tactics and a passion for learning, I'm exited to grow as a T-shaped marketer and put my skills to the test in a new organization.

Talent Acquisition Intern

Bombardier Recreational Products (BRP)‍‍‍

May 2015 - Sept 2015‍‍‍

Work term number one, in a primarily french environment. I'm bilingual, but I won't lie, constantly communicating and producing content in my second language was pretty challenging. Although google translate and french dictionary sites were my best friends for the summer, it was a great introduction to the professional world in a great company. Some of my tasks included:

  • Tracking and reporting on the team's KPIs through dashboard management with GROW.‍‍‍
  • Helping to attract prospective employees through external and internal communications and presentations.
  • Preparing welcome packages and greeting new employees and co-op students.
