Communications Coordinator, Foresters Financial and
Social Media Consultant, Caryatid Communications
Felicia is a Communications Coordinator with Foresters Financial, a fraternal-based insurance company. Felicia’s role with the company is to help deliver programs, events, and organizational information to over 500+ member leaders residing in Canada, the US and the UK.
Felicia also runs her own social media consulting business, Caryatid Communications and keeps busy in her spare time as a volunteer with IABC/Toronto as the Editor in Chief of the Communicator. She will be transitioning to the role of Director, Publications with IABC/Toronto in the fall of 2019. In addition, Felicia is a board member at BridgeWay Family Centre, a non-profit organization that has over 40 drop-in early childhood centres in the region of Peel. In her role on the board, Felicia is a member of the risk management committee as well as the communications and marketing task force.
Felicia believes there is something very valuable to investing your time and skills into something that matters more than just personal gain. This is why she became a more active member of IABC/Toronto in 2015. Felicia started as a student member in 2012 because it was a ‘smart thing to do’ and occasionally participated in events. But realized that if she wanted to maximize the benefit of being a member, she had to do more. Felicia started by volunteering at the OVATION Awards, then managing social media accounts and now she is editing the Communicator.
Felicia had the opportunity to try different roles and expand her skillset with her IABC membership which helped with her professional development and networking opportunities outside of work. For Felicia, it is true, the more you put into something the more you will get out of it personally and professionally.
