Hi, I’m Mackenzie and the Director of Communications here at Epilepsy Toronto. That means I’m responsible for all of our materials and newsletters, our visibility in the media, our website, our social media presence and supporting the rest of the team here with their communication needs. Most importantly, I’m here to tell our stories: the stories of the agency and the work that we do; the stories of our members and their experiences living with epilepsy.
I am also the Entertainment and Marketing Director for the Toronto International BuskerFest for Epilepsy. I’ve been working with Epilepsy Toronto on this event since it began back in 2000 and I have watched it grow into the incredible festival it is today, the largest epilepsy awareness event in the world!
For the festival, I take care of the performers and many aspects of the promotion and publicity of the event. It makes me very proud to work on such a unique and vibrant arts festival that hosts performers, and spectators from around the world. But it makes me even prouder to know that it’s all in support of such a great cause.
