As the Royal Ontario Museum's Digital Engagement Coordinator, my role is focused on digital content creation, campaign and community management, as well as building capacity within the institution. Experienced in building content and digital strategies that have value for communities, I have grown our reach on Twitter alone by over 6,000% and our community by over 1,600% since 2012. 

Previous to this role, I worked in the Library & Archives (2009-2012) and I supervised the ROM's large and diverse Visitor Services team between 2006-2009. I hold an Advanced BA in History from Dalhousie University and an MA in Museum Studies from Johns Hopkins University.

Active in the museum community, I have volunteered with the Canadian Museums Association's Young Canada Works Project, I sit on the boards of ICOM Canada and the Virtual Museum of Canada, and am the Museum Computer Network's part-time Digital Content and Community Manager.
