Media Spokesperson

moved to Ottawa temporarily to act as the media spokesperson for the first annual International Film Festival of Ottawa to get the word out to film fans on a local, national and international level. 

“Lisa came to work with the Canadian Film Institute on contract as the Media Coordinator for the International Film
Festival of Ottawa (IFFO). 

She jumped right in on the first day, helping the staff to run the media launch. She learned quickly and was able to think on
her feet. I was impressed by her professionalism. After the launch she followed up with media requests and sent out a
number of releases.

Lisa is very pleasant and a good team member. She was reliable and punctual. She was open to feedback and was
goal-oriented.

Had the event not been cancelled, I am sure Lisa would have been an invaluable team member managing the media! I
wish her well with her future endeavours.”
– Kelly Neall
Managing Director, Canadian Film Institute.

I was hired to write a feature article for the launch issue of Toronto’s Luxe magazine. I was given a word count and creative freedom. So, I chose to write about cannabis. Luxe is a quarterly magazine celebrating fine living. Décor, style, travel, art, food, wine and more for those who know how to live well.

I was working full-time at Rogers Media’s head office for its publication Canadian Grocer. We had a gym in the building where I worked with a personal trainer. During my sessions, I would notice iced coffees sitting on the weight room floor. So, I curiously uncovered the reasoning behind it and published a story in Inside Fitness magazine.

Here I write about working for an escort service after seven years in journalism. I came across a job listing on Facebook for a social media/marketing manager at an anonymous agency. I was intrigued, assuming the gig was related to sexology (the study of human sexuality) because it had been posted by a sexologist friend of mine. I sent in my resumé. Read Here.
