I am the Royal Ontario Museum's (ROM) Social Media Coordinator. My new role will be integral to building audiences and the ROM brand, to perform an advocacy role for the ROM in social media spaces, to provide guidance to internal staff and to shape and monitor public perception of the ROM through social media presence. Previous to this role I worked in the Library & Archives at the ROM as a Library Technician. Between 2006 and 2009 I was part of and supervised a large and diverse Visitor Services team at the ROM while welcoming over one million visitors annually. I have an advanced BA in History from Dalhousie University and an MA in Museum Studies from Johns Hopkins University.
Interested in all things social, mobile, information accessibility, and interactive technology use in exhibits, I regularly present on museum mobile/social media strategies and lead/collaborate on various social media projects throughout the institution.
