For two years I built and managed the online presence and social strategy for the Charcoal Group of Restaurants. Which included managing a team of community managers and content development for six unique brands. 

Through freelance projects and full-time work I've designed and developed a number of websites, a few of which you can see in 'Projects'. From concept to creation I can work with you through the entire project to make sure it's what you need.

I've been writing for the web for over six years, and have really honed my writing and interviewing skills through building my online publication Ways We Work. Whether you're looking for copy for your website, social media posts or a full article - I have a range of experience in writing for the web.

CONTENT CREATION & SOCIAL STRATEGY

Whether you're looking to get started with content marketing and social or you need help with a new campaign, it's a language I speak fluently. 

  • photography for social media and websites
  • content creation for a digital campaign
  • creative development for campaigns, contests, events
  • analytics for social profiles and campaigns
  • creation of editorial/content calendars
  • custom HTML/CSS newsletters

WRITING

Writing is a huge part of creating for the web. It's how you tell your story, share with your audience and communicate your values. 

  • copywriting for social content
  • writing and editing your website's copy
  • custom articles or blog posts

  • wireframing, sketching and research
  • fully responsive web design
  • Google analytics
  • development on easy to use CMS
  • Tools: Statamic & Squarespace

I have had the pleasure of working closely with Amandah for many years on small and large scale projects. Her work is thoughtful, strategic and executed beautifully. She goes into a project fearlessly and will do everything in her power - including learning new skills - to complete the vision. I am always searching for ways to collaborate with her, as she is such a valuable asset to any project. It is rare to find a multidisciplinary creative as talented and driven as Amandah.

Amandah joined and embraced our fast-growing organization as our Kitchener-Waterloo Chapter Lead. She was instrumental in launching and building our community of learners and mentors, all passionate and engaged with our mission of teaching women and youth 21st century technical skills in a social and collaborative way. She invested her time tirelessly to organize, market and execute events for women and girls working with local tech companies, donors, volunteers and community leaders to expand our reach in the region. Amandah laid a strong foundation in Kitchener-Waterloo and we’re thankful to have had the opportunity to work with her. Amandah is an absolute pleasure to work with and I would recommend her highly to anyone who has the opportunity to work with her!
