Teresa recently joined the ASG team, bringing her skills as a researcher and writing professional with an extensive background in public relations, promotions and communications.
As Senior Account Executive for ten years at Machanik & Stone Public Relations in Toronto, she developed campaigns and promotion strategies to help clients in the consumer products, beauty and fashion industries gain media coverage and greater awareness of their new product launches and program initiatives.
Switching gears slightly to follow her interest in community development and her belief in the essential nature of the nonprofit sector, she worked at Business Improvement Areas in Toronto promoting small businesses and attractions in the York-Eglinton and Yonge Lawrence neighbourhoods, and worked on the successful launches of the Green Tourism Map while handling the public relations and awareness campaigns for the Green Tourism Association in Toronto.
Most recently, she assisted Scarborough Women’s Centre doing prospect research and grant proposal development.
Teresa has a Master’s of Information from the University of Toronto and a Bachelor of Arts from Carleton University, as well as a Certificate in Public Relations from Humber College.
