Prior to hanging out my shingle as a freelance communications professional, I was employed in both the public (provincial government) and private sector.
I have written interactive children's books and game scripts, political speeches, annual reports, press releases, op-eds, web copy, advertising and marketing materials - and everything in between. I've run a communications department, staged media events, project-managed new websites and produced video games. I've worked in a variety of sectors including:
In my off-hours, I enjoy hiking, the culinary arts and spending time with my daughter. I live in Victoria, B.C.
I am a dual (U.S./Canadian) citizen and speak moderately passable French.
"You either have communications savvy, or you don’t. Hope has it. She ran our communications department with equal parts insight, skill and equilibrium – and was an invaluable member of the team."
Hope is a dedicated communications professional who is confident navigating challenging environments. She is shrewd and insightful, which means she is quick to identify communications opportunities as well as risks."
