Isabela developed a critical eye for detail while working as a Web Editor for Investopedia.com, an investment education website that was later purchased by Forbes Media. She went on to teach journalism and professional writing at MacEwan University before joining the University of Alberta as a Media Relations Associate in 2007. During nearly a decade at the U of A, she took on a variety of marketing and communications roles, culminating in a three-year stint as Communications Manager for the Faculty of Education.
