The Magpie team
From managing people and projects to budgets and committees, I have had the opportunity to develop a wide range of management and administrative skills. Along the way, I also honed my writing abilities through designing educational materials, editing professional journals, developing marketing and business plans and travel blogging.
My thesis work in adult education focusing on narrative, or storytelling has had tremendous influence on my approach to writing. I truly believe that story or sharing our "lived experiences" can change - and vastly improve - how we communicate with each other.
My expertise (and what I thoroughly enjoy) lies in creative problem solving, assessing complex scenarios to determine the key elements that stakeholders need to meet their objectives, and converting strategic plans into reality.
I spent over a decade in the feed industry supporting farmers and agribusinesses across western Canada in various leadership roles. I also worked for several years specializing in marketing / communications, where my roles included managing consumer engagement programs and social media for multiple Saskatchewan organizations using consumer-focused messaging.
THE MAGPIE STORY
Magpies are tenacious, inquisitive, highly intelligent and, some might say, misunderstood. So it was that two tenacious, inquisitive, intelligent and sometimes misunderstood old birds recognized their like-mindedness and decided to work together.
