What do you do at Perigee?

I’m a bit of a generalist here at Perigee, which I love! Each day is different and I get to work on so many projects. You’ll typically find me working on content for our apps, creating new ideas for features, updating our marketing materials or looking for new concepts for A/B testing.

What’s your story?

I started my career in Toronto, Canada working at a PR agency for a variety of different clients. Warner Brothers, American Express, Spotify, EA, Bauer - you name it I probably worked on it. I decided to broaden my horizons in the fall of 2018 and moved to Sweden. I have been loving it ever since! When I first moved to Sweden I worked as a freelancer in Malmö helping CEOs learn how to effectively brand and market themselves before officially landing here at Perigee.

  3. Heavyweight (podcast)

What do you enjoy doing when you are not working?

Exploring neighbourhoods, biking around the countryside and watching cooking videos.

What are you passionate about?

I LOVE cooking. I’ve probably watched every Netflix special and YouTube video on cooking and have spent countless hours enthralled in books like Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat.

How do you think your colleagues would describe you?

Most likely bubbly and fun (I hope!)

What would be your personal motto?

Don’t worry, be happy.

What has been your favorite project at Perigee?

There’s so many to choose from! Right now I would say my favourite project has been working on the Cycles Redesign. If you check-out the Insights tab you’ll see a wealth of information about body changes related to the menstrual cycle and tips on how to help relieve and discomfort they may cause. I spent hours going over scientific studies and remedies to create that content and I’m super proud of how many people it has helped so far!

What skill(s) have you developed while working at Perigee?

Understanding the world of apps! Okay, I know that’s not necessarily a “skill”...but it’s a cool and unique sector of the tech industry that I haven’t been in until now and it opens up a door to so many new and innovative ways of thinking and improving a consumer product.
