wendy-oconnor-photoAbout Wendy O’Connor

A graduate (B.A.) of University of Toronto’s English Specialist Program, I have spent most of my career as a technical writer/editor and communications professional. From developing online help for geospatial education programs (Keigan Systems, 2001 – 2004), to editing and laying out Kevin O’Connor’s 11 books on tube electronics (1995 – present), I have spent a lot of time with print. More recently, as a communications employee for a local municipality (City of Thunder Bay, 2011 – 2017), I’ve been privileged to delve even further into media relations and advertising, both online and conventional.

In recent years while living, working and volunteering in the Thunder Bay area, I have honed my skills as a web developer, event promoter and advertiser. I can create print, graphic, and photographic content to develop a comprehensive advertising campaign.
