THE LAST DECADE
BUSINESS GROWTH STRATEGIST
2013 - 2019
I created Hijinx Strategies to help small businesses, entrepreneurs and non-profit organizations succeed.
Through consulting and ongoing coaching programs I have been able to develop a business growth strategy planning system that incorporates fundamental best practices and the unique intricacies and resource challenges of each client.
The success of this system has inspired an online course and a publication deal, but the real joy is the impact it has on the lives of my clients.
2015 - 2018
I created and operated Epicured Market, Canada's first online grocery, recipe and meal planning service designed for consumers with dietary restrictions due to medical diagnosis.
From conception to build to launch to exit and everything in between. I turned my passion for health and wellness into a thriving business that filled a market gap but made me miserable to run.
Thankfully, I caught the interest of investors who absorbed it into a larger existing company. Phew.
STRATEGIST & CREATIVE DIRECTOR
Brand Momentum Inc.
2009 - 2013
As a member of the executive I led more than 60% of the company's revenue, the largest team of amazing Account Managers, and all strategic and creative brand development for the agency's 30+ National and Global brands.
While in this position (the first four years of the company) BMI was named one of the country's Top Places to Work, and was included in Profit Magazine's Top 10 fastest growing companies.
