Welcome to my little piece of the Net.
I am a 26 year old Brit, currently living in the beautiful Corso Italia neighbourhood of Toronto. I am an Account Manager at PTPA Media, and also have several side projects including The Afterschool Club, CuppaTee and Marketing2Mommy.
The Afterschool Club offers after school programs and birthday parties across Toronto and the GTA. You can find out more at theafterschoolclub.ca.
One thing I have done for a couple of years now is to buy a homeless person a hot drink whenever I buy myself one (if there is a homeless person outside the coffee shop). CuppaTee will allow people to purchase a Tee-Shirt; and with every Tee-Shirt sold, a homeless person will receive a hot drink. The program is in the very early stages, however you can follow us on Twitter at @CuppaTeeGiving.
Finally, Marketing2Mommy is a website and social account that allows me to reach out to companies who would like to promote themselves to moms; which is the primary function of my job at PTPA. To learn more, please visit Marketing2Mommy.com.
When not looking after the various things above, I like to run. I have run 2 marathons, and am training for my 3rd. After my next marathon I will start training for a Triathlon; the ultimate goal being to complete an Iron Man race. I volunteer at The Good Shepherd (a homeless shelter in Toronto) every other week and regularly attend a Body Attack class at Goodlife Fitness (which if you haven’t tried it, is a lot of fun).
In the future I would very much like to compete in the Clipper Race! It is a round the world yacht race, broken down into 6 stages. So, I may do a stage at a time, or do the whole thing. I would like to see Australia, which luckily for me is a stop off on the race, so I was thinking I might sail to Australia and then travel round it.
