Stephanie’s online odyssey began with her first job in 1999, after graduating from the University of King’s College with a Bachelor of Journalism, Honours. That’s when she was tasked with interviewing pop stars and evaluating Britney Spears concerts for Canoe.ca. The job morphed into a life creating digital content and strategizing new ways to organize and measure its success.
Now, she’s a Digital Content Strategist by day. During the evenings she keeps her writing skills sharp with freelance work for the Halifax Chronicle Herald, Huffington Post Canada, MSN, TheLoop.ca and Definitely Not the Opera.
Stephanie tries to master one new professional skill each year and recently completed the Video Storytelling Workshop at KDMC Berkeley, University of California, Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism. To date, Martin Scorsese is not feeling threatened.
Stephanie’s work in the digital field earned her a place on 21Inc’s list of Top 50 Emerging Leaders in 2013 and a speaking engagement at the New Canada Conference in Charlottetown, P.E.I. in 2014.
In her spare time, Stephanie is over-indulging in Netflix, running the Halifax streets to compensate for her overindulgence in food and indulging her dog Mo.
Lily brings a fresh, quirky, and utterly original outlook to the content she aggregates and creates. With a Master of Journalism, Digital & New Media Degree from the University of King’s College, Lily’s skills make her the perfect person to keep social channels and websites alive with fresh content.
In her role as a Content Strategist, Lily focuses on T4G Kick’s Tourism New Brunswick (TNB) AOR account and the Two Nation Vacation account, as well as social media content for Devour! The Beach.
Her daily tasks include copywriting, engaging with social media fans, maintaining editorial calendars, proof-reading and reviewing social media and website analytics to understand what content is performing well and what needs to be adjusted.
Lily is highly organized and can juggle multiple deadlines, projects and requests. When she’s not working, she enjoys indulging in her love of history, travel and experimental cooking.
