After seven years working in marketing agencies, Tasha took the step of intersecting her passion with her skills and joined Arts Commons as Director, Marketing & Communications, leading the brand launch for Arts Commons, as well as several seasons of marketing campaigns for Arts Commons Presents. After 5 years in this role, she made the change to Communications Strategist, with her primary focus on the Arts Commons Transformation (ACT) project. Today, as Vice President of Strategic Projects, she continues to promote ACT and also leads a variety of special projects.
Tasha’s parents were active arts supporters, with season tickets to Theatre Calgary, Alberta Theatre Projects, and the Calgary Opera, which they shared with her as she began showing interest. Her mom was a docent at the Glenbow Museum and introduced her to many Canadian artists, which provided her with her most prized possession - a pen portrait done of her at eight years old, by prairie artist Illingworth Kerr. As a young adult, Tasha became a regular at One Yellow Rabbit’s High Performance Rodeo, and still looks forward to it every year.
Working with the companies that exposed her to her first artistic experiences is a dream come true. Along with a Bachelor of Arts in Communications and Culture, Tasha holds a Project Management Professional (PMP) designation and also achieved her MBA in 2014.
Unless she's traveling abroad, Tasha spends most of her free time with her dog Lucy, exploring inner city parks or enjoying lake life in BC.
