Marketing Dynamo, Event Producer, Project Manager, Lindy Hopper

Hello!

Welcome to my website hub with links to my business and project websites.

I’m the marketing dynamo behind Barker Social Marketing; I use digital marketing to grab attention and grow brands online.

I’m also the Event Producer for Roaring Twenties Events in Toronto. As a Lindy Hopper, I have a Dance Website and I’m a member of the board of advisors for the Frankie Manning Foundation.

I offer accountability and transparent services with detailed ROI reporting so you always understand the work we’re doing and what you’re getting for your investment.

When I’m not busy with marketing projects or organizing an event, you’ll find me dancing or with my birds.


I’ve been an entrepreneur since 1999 and have extensive project management experience. My portfolio ranges from work in digital marketing, to the arts, fashion, food and beverage, administration, and executive recruitment. In the past I’ve created, successfully operated, and sold two businesses.

I run a digital marketing agency, Barker Social Marketing, with an international team and global client base. I’ve acted as the direct Project Coordinator to the Country Leader of Canada in a large corporate office, and I have an extensive background in event organizing. I was the overall organizer of a wildly successful $800K event in New York City with a team of more than two dozen staff reporting to me and over 2000 people in attendance.

I’m a highly effective individual, business woman, and marketing dynamo.
