With over 10 years of experience in various client service-oriented roles, I have superb interpersonal and communication skills.

In my own business, Astrobloom, I wear many hats and manage my time efficiently.  Over the last year, I have completed a marketing coaching program with The Wellness Marketer.  I built a content and communications strategy using Asana, doubled my Instagram following, built an email list using Flodesk and Wix integrations, organized several successful events (in person and virtual), maintained my Wix website, launched Meta Business Suite Ad Campaigns, published several blogs and a podcast on all major streaming platforms, on top of product and client services.

Over the last 5 years, as Industry Liaison Officer at the University of Guelph, I have acted as a bridge to facilitate research projects between internal (faculty) and external clients (companies, not-for-profits, government organizations).  This role includes everything from maintaining relationships, managing expectations, assisting with grant applications, recording meeting minutes, keeping an organized inbox and calendar, maintaining a CRM database, compiling reports, organizing events, and acting as the face of a large organization at external events.

My passions lie in holistic wellness, yoga, conscious living and spirituality, and I would love to help clients in these spaces utilizing my diverse skillset!
