I'M kama! Mom, teacher, + BLOGGER
While Kama has a passport chock full of stamps, things have changed a bit since becoming a mom. Her family ‘thinks globally while acting locally’, with their love for small shops + big adventures. She has over a decade of PR experience with non-profits, businesses + destination marketing.
Early in her career as a teacher, she began working with at-risk youth, which inspired her MA in Community Development + Adult Education. Her travels to Kenya with Red Rose Tea + Me to We, and Rwanda with Because I am A Girl + smartwater provided powerful lessons about corporate social responsibility + women’s cooperatives. These trips also served as media boot camp with interviews on CBC Radio, CTV, + Elle Canada.
Kama is grateful for the chance to be creative + share the stories of their adventures together in this blog.
Hi there, I’m Kama. True Story:
My selfie stick was confiscated at the White House.
In addition to teaching full time, I love sharing stories of small shops and big adventures—especially ones that are good for the community.
I’ve worked on some cool social media projects in the past. These ended when I moved from my small hometown on Vancouver Island to South Surrey/ White Rock. Without any connections over here, I decided to go rogue. I learned some new skills and started my own thing…which has morphed into this blog. Ethigal has been a great way to meet new people and collab on some successful projects with local brands.
If you're a local business or brand looking to connect with the conscious consumer, we just might have something to talk about.
I specialize in authentic influencer marketing campaigns for small shops, community organizations, tourism boards, and ethically minded businesses. If you're looking for an enthusiastic ambassador and long term fan, check out what my other partners have to say!
