Mika has seen the industry from both sides. After leaving Queen’s University with a B.A. in philosophy and psychology, she traveled the world, broadening her interests and experience before returning to school. After attaining public relations and web design diplomas from the University of Winnipeg, Mika took on a marketing and communications role at Western Financial Insurance Company. Her main duties were initially copywriting and graphic design, but she quickly rose to creating strategy, establishing and managing budgets, and developing leadership skill and relationships. She then transitioned to the agency side, where she further grew her passion for creative collaboration, branding and corporate culture.
Mika loves exploring the world. Over the years she’s travelled to New Zealand, Australia, Fiji, Thailand, England and France, and plans to venture further still.
