I have been using social media personally and professionally for nearly five years. My experience has included blogging for non-profits, local initiatives, and a health centre, writing my own health blog and rhetoric blog, and managing multiple Twitter and Facebook accounts. I am a Winnipeg-based freelance writer and editor as well as a Certified Holistic Nutritionist, and I received first place in the 2010 Canadian Weblog Awards for Sports, Fitness and Nutrition and a top blog award in nutrition in 2011.
