Thank you to James Turner for the headshot.

I am a third-generation Chinese Canadian artist, writer, and freelance communications specialist who was born and raised on Indigenous territory in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

In the spring of 2020, I graduated from the Creative Communications program at Red River College Polytech with a specialization in Public Relations and Communication Management.

Before freelancing, I worked in the non-profit sector doing marketing communications, event planning, and administration. I’m happiest when I can organize and use my creativity while contributing to the health and well-being of the community and society at large.

During my spare time, I enjoy appreciating the outdoors with my partner, reading non-fiction, singing along to my ABBA records, and connecting with friends.

“The Winnipeg Food Council needed a graphic designer for a report with a relatively short deadline, and Alanna was able to step in and support us no problem. Alanna was responsive and professional, and very efficient at implementing requested changes. Our team was really pleased with how the report turned out. I would highly recommend working with Alanna and hope to do so again in the future!”

Jeanette Sivilay, Winnipeg Food Council Coordinator, City of Winnipeg

“Alanna’s work in the planning, production, and execution of the Pride Winnipeg Festival was instrumental in the success of the event. Their easy-going attitude, attention to detail, and clear communication style coupled with their thorough document management propelled the many moving parts of festival planning. Alanna brings ethical integrity to their work that creates a culture of kindness and collective purpose in the workplace and larger community.”

Ashley Au, Festival Producer, Pride Winnipeg

“We contracted Alanna to help with administration and communications in preparation for Canadian Worker Co-op Federation’s first-ever virtual conference and annual general meeting. She jumped in quickly and had everything organized right away. She was independent, efficient, and knew when to ask questions. It was an extremely positive experience, and we’d recommend her to anyone who needs her skill set.” 

Kaye Grant, Communications Manager, Canadian Worker Co-operative Federation
