why awedity creative?
You love your business, and now, by the sheer fact that you are here, you want to make it incredible, let's do this! Rome was not built in a day and I know doing it right the first time makes it last a lifetime!
We cannot accomplish everything on our own and we don't get a second chance to make that first impression, so, together, we do it right the first time, we build something memorable and build marketing plans to help execute everything seamlessly.
After spending 20+ years helping the big businesses stay big, I learned that it is much more gratifying to help local business owners find their way, build their business and realize their dreams (which also inadvertently, helps me reach my dreams).
I found a need in Okotoks, where I live, so that's where my business launched in 2007. Since then I have I helped 100's of fellow business owners in Okotoks, High River, and international companies develop and grow their business, find ways to connect with their audience and be seen, after all, don't glasses help you see better?
I know my stuff, this has been my whole career, and I love it!
While the school of life is great, I believe in investing in education, hence, I have completed studies at SAIT, MRU, ACAD, and UofC in;
Graphic design (web design and publishing design), Mount Royal University, ACAD
Online Communications (social media, crisis management, and PR), SAIT
I am also committed to learning and understanding the latest trends, I attend 2-4 conferences annually focusing on Graphic Design, Social Media and Digital trends.
I was the Marketing lead in large companies, including Oil and Gas, Finance, and investment, for over 19+ years working in downtown Calgary. I have been completing my own graphic design for 12+ and social media management for 6+ years. You can find my experience on LinkedIn

Taking time to give back to the community is important to me.
We believe every business has the ability to help provide and enrich the town, city, and areas in which we live and to give back.
I have been hired for Speaking, training, and coaching to local business owners by local stakeholder groups in Okotoks and High River as well as in Calgary.
Each year I donate services and time to multiple fundraisers, including:
Okotoks Junior Hockey, Cooking for Kids and the Okotoks Oilers Golf Tournament.
We also believe in helping the Okotoks Food Bank and giving to local animal non-for-profit groups including 100 Women Who Care Foothills, Women Making Changes, BCO- Baby It's Cold Out and Foothills Country Hospice with their community efforts.
