A fun-loving expat, Colleen was born and raised in Zimbabwe (‘the little teapot in Southern Africa’). As a seasoned Digital Marketing specialist with 10 years’ experience in customer service and online marketing, Colleen brings an innate ability to build engaging and effective digital strategies. Her demonstrated history working in the advertising and telecommunications space lends a keen perspective to her work—an invaluable credit to the g[squared] team.
Colleen’s personal mantra is as unique and lively as she is: “Let’s get it! Add a bass soundtrack somewhere in there,” which basically just means she’ll do more than just a great job, she’ll add her own creative flair to her work and take it to the next level. Ambitious and adventurous, Colleen’s passion is working on any projects that have the potential to impact the world in a positive way. This drive toward good is what compelled her to volunteer with organizations in Zimbabwe that raise funds for underprivileged kids and orphans. Currently, Colleen is taking steps toward starting a foundation here in Canada that will cater to some of the African community, by mitigating cultural differences and adaptations of their new reality.
