DIGITAL STORYTELLER | PUBLIC RELATIONS SPECIALIST
a little bit
As a digital storyteller and public relations expert, I excel in a fast-paced, interactive business environment that welcomes creativity and innovation. My passion and enthusiasm, and creative use of mediums, motivates me to go above and beyond expectations----always. Here are a few of my skills that (I've been told) really make me stick out:
An eye for design. Whether it's a suite of social media graphics or an entire website, I take pride in making things look "pretty."
My... way with words. From social media messages to press releases, I understand the importance of knowing your audience and (when appropriate) take every opportunity to throw in a pun. Not sure how to break down hard-to-understand material? Leave it to me.
Staying organized: it's a personality trait. Maybe not one that necessarily affects the quality of my work, but believe-you-me it sure does keep things efficient and easy to follow.
From internal corporate communications and public works, to finance and planning, to economic development and tourism, I have worked with a wide variety of clients to:
Create compelling content (writing, editing and graphic design) for a variety of mediums
Manage high-profile social media accounts, including the creation of successful marketing strategies and advertising campaigns
Develop and design high-traffic websites for internal and external audiences
Build brand guidelines that creatively and cohesively tell a company's story
Plan and implement special projects
"It was a pleasure having Brooke work for the City of Pickering. I found her to be very insightful, organized, and professional in all of my dealings with her. During her term with the City, she became a trusted and valued member of our Communications and Public Affairs team. She was very successful in engaging our residents and stakeholders through a number of platforms. I was especially pleased that through her media relations efforts, an innovative City of Pickering program received national profile in the Toronto Star. Brooke should be very proud that she helped strengthen Pickering’s burgeoning reputation as a municipal leader. Brooke has the talent, skills, and drive to become a strong team member for any organization, and I would not hesitate in recommending her."
