Are you planning an event and want to bring in some expertise? Do you need advice for marketing your restaurant online? I’m available for temporary and contract work.

I am an a award-winning online and broadcast journalist exploring the world of communications. In the past few years, I was an instructor of social media at the Vancouver Film School, a consultant in public relations, part of the BC NDP communications team and most recently the Manager of Public Diplomacy for the Australian High Commission (Embassy) in Ottawa. It was in that final job I realized I have a knack for event planning – from small wine and cheese gatherings to large diplomatic functions.

“In her role as Public Diplomacy Manager, Ms Loxam developed and implemented an ambitious public outreach strategy for the High Commission, involving project managing a range of high-profile events and managing our social media and online presence. Ms Loxam was a pleasure to work with, and we regret that she needed to relocate away from Ottawa.” – Australian Deputy High Commissioner to Canada
