Sole-proprietor / Contractor
Over three decades of work experience. From HR Corporate Programs Specialist, (NAV CANADA); Communications and Marketing, Coordinator Special Projects (National Gallery of Canada); Executive Assistant to a Director General System Safety Aviation (Transport Canada); EA to Executive Director Wireless Networks, (Industry Canada); Senior Office Administrator for a Private Elementary School (Westboro Academy); Sole-Proprietor Full-Circle Creative Communications, Website Designer, and more! Several jobs throughout my career also included overseeing and maintaining the organization's website, in addition to my position's own original responsibilities.
My Mac-based permanent home office is in Ottawa (Nepean), Ontario, Canada.
Meetings are by Zoom, telephone and email/text. Hours are very flexible to accommodate the needs of my customers.
I do the work myself so you always know you can depend on fast, reliable attention from someone who gets to know not only you and your business, but also how you like your brand to be represented.
I have a valid Enhanced Security Clearance, and Vulnerable Sector Check Clearance.
Ingenuity and resourcefulness:
My long-term philanthropic endeavour is CharityWishList.ca. I created the concept for it back in 2003 when I discovered it was really difficult to give things away. So many still good items end up in landfills because people give up after too many failed attempts to find a new home for their items. So I made the process easier.
Created the website, and designed the logo which achieved trademark status in 2008.
Researched charities across Canada, and what types of categories of items are wanted.
I built the first website in 2005, and redesigned it over the years as technology changed. I have been running CharityWishList.ca ever since.
Listings are free for charities, and donation item categories are listed by province/city.
The public accesses the info self-serve for free; contacting me if they can't find info.
I discovered a love of website building that continues today.
WHY Fundraising Management and website design? Often the two cross over as each can be beneficial to the other; furthering goals and desired outcomes is an offshoot of great website design.
Wix and Shopify websites for charities, small to medium sized businesses and artists, are my favourite websites to build.
I also consult and create fundraising management strategies, research and write grant applications, do marketing, design social media ads, and many other aspects of fundraising and business management, research and reporting.
Reach your goals by
streamlining your website and resources.
