I fell into a career in advertising way back in 1998. The first years were spent as a print producer and running creative departments. Then I switched over to
the dark side account services. My clients have included Rocky Mountaineer, Tourism BC, General Paint and many others.
I went back to a very short gig as a producer and realized that was no longer my thing. So now I work as account manager/writer/planner/producer/etc. And I love it. I prefer to do a little bit of everything and I feel that helps me understand my industry and in turn, deliver the best product to my clients.
Living in Vancouver, I am a lover of scotch, kittens and the smell of freshly printed brochures. I’m a hater of pantyhose, mouth-breathers and drinking the Kool-aid… unless it’s spiked with vodka .
I have met some of the most talented and intelligent people in this industry and would love to contribute something – perhaps entertainment – to the community that has given so much to me. And since you asked, my dear friends coined the name Dame and it seems to come in handy online as the user name Jenn Wallis is almost always taken.
