Communication has always been an interest of mine. During my first year of Cegep at Lasalle College, I interned for a Montreal based PR agency during the Montreal Fashion Week. It was my first experience in the industry and I enjoyed it right away! Even if I was more of an observer, meeting the media,  giving out press kits and watching all the fashion shows was a pretty great first experience.

I then had the chance to  execute my second internship with Cossette Communication and was able to work with many different departments of the agency, including publicity, marketing, web and public relations.

After graduating from University in Paris, I came back to Montreal and landed my third internship at Zak Communications. Let’s say I was a lucky intern, since I was able to work with amazing people that trusted me to really help them with work and clients. Therefore, I was assisting Account Managers on brands such as Michael Kors and Sephora. 

 

 

Since 2001, I have been working as a freelance PR specialist for different brands and agencies in Montreal and Toronto.
