I am grateful to work with so many trusted partners, respected people with an incredible story to share. My team helps businesses and individuals empower and expand their brands in traditional, digital and social media. Life is about moments. They can be captured at a press conference, in social media, a video, or a photo. Terrific stories seem to follow me wherever I go. I hear them as I shake hands in the community or at the neighbourhood park. And like any good story it starts with a connection.I have had the privilege of telling stories for 20 years as a TV journalist at two national networks in Canada. I am now writing a beautiful, ever evolving, new chapter in my journey. My team is an experienced group of storytellers with a dynamic and creative touch. We would love the opportunity to devise a strategy with you to make a lasting impression.
The city of Edmonton is unique with 162 community leagues which knit us all together. The Edmonton Federation of Community Leagues showcased its story at city council during budget deliberations.
Storytelling is difficult on most days, even more so with COVID-19. Edmonton’s then, new mayoralty candidate, Amarjeet Sohi mobilized a movement of hope. He brings to this city a story of hard work, tenacity, and commitment. We channeled his inspiration, grit and compassion in his opening video.
An independent task force appointed by Edmonton city council looked at the safety ecosystem after many shared stories about how they don’t feel safe calling police for help. This diverse group with lived experience examined and researched ways to improve the system. They set out to convince those in power to “believe us” that not everyone trusts those who are supposed to protect them. This is their story.

"After 25 years with Legal Aid, I lost my job. Set adrift, I wanted to continue doing what I love best, helping people. Serena was my compass and anchor. She and her team devised a social campaign, which lifted my profile and harnessed a sustainable community funding stream. Today I am my own employer, and haven’t missed a beat advocating and fighting for our most vulnerable. Thank you Serena, without your help, I wouldn’t have made it!"
