I specialize in...
Guides' Own is the unofficial Guiding podcast that I host with my Guiding friend, Taryn.
In my role as co-host, I conduct research and collaborate with Taryn and our producer Jake in the recording of weekly podcast episodes on the topic of Girl Guides, its history and future, and how it affects us.
Additionally, I have been responsible for the website design, writing and editing blog posts, designing the podcast logo, and social media management.
845 St. Clair
As the website designer for this project, I was responsible for creating a digital space in which the tenants and landlord of 845 St. Clair could communicate and share information seamlessly. I collaborated with the landlord and project manager to present content in a clean space and create a positive experience for the users.
My process began in a meeting with the project manager, where we discussed the scope of the project, as well as the criteria and milestones. From that point I developed wireframes and edited copy for the site. I generated the website with Wix, converting the low-fi designs and content into an active webpage.
Stretch into Winter
BLOG & CONTENT EDITOR
Stretch Into Winter is a blog post featured on the Stepping Stone Orthotics blog, which is home to Canadian Certified Pedorthist C. Ped (C), Shannon Bunnett.
This project began with capturing video and photo
content for the blog post, as well as collaborating
with Shannon to plan the post content. I was
responsible for editing the visual and written
content as well, which I built and designed into the
post using Webflow. Additionally, I created a similar
layout in Constant Contact which I then sent to
Shannon's clients directly.
This post, among many others, are projects that I managed as the blog and content editor for the Stepping Stone blog.
IronMom Health Coaching
As the website designer for the IronMom Health Coaching website, I created a digital platform for small-business owner, Andrea Good. I collaborated with her to develop a website which would give her the ability to advertise the business and services she provides.
I scheduled meetings with the client, communicated with her to determine her needs and design expectations, and developed a project timeline. Additionally, I designed wireframes and collected copy and visual content before creating the site in Wix. My process was iterative, which allowed for changes to be made upon consultation with the client.
Marsna Jamborette Crest
In 2019, I took on the role of Responsible Guider for a Nationally-Sponsored Trip with Girl Guides of Canada. Along with 3 other Guiders, I traveled with a group of 24 girls to the Netherlands where we took part in an International camp of Guiding and Scouting.
In addition to my responsibilities as guardian, mentor, and liaison on this trip, I volunteered to become the lead designer of our trip crest. I conducted user and product research, produced low fidelity prototypes, created and iterated on my design, and collaborated with a Canadian embroidery company to produce a high quality product.
