While at London Health Sciences Centre (LHSC), I developed a Year in Review for the new portfolio of Facilities Management, Environmental and Support Services (FMESS). The new portfolio encompassed many departments and support service areas. I focused on the changes over the 2016-17 year, the great work being done, and visions for the future. We also included friendly congratulations and recognition for staff members who played vital roles throughout the year. The Year in Review was intended for a general audience, both at LHSC and outside the organization.
I worked closely with the Vice-President to develop the framework, with other staff to conduct research and develop the content, and compiled and wrote the content for the report. I also took many photos, profiling the human dimension of support services as much as possible. I designed the final layout in a package suitable for offset printing and online distribution.

The Facilities Management department at London Health Sciences Centre needed to improve its public profile at the hospital, and one strategy was to produce a Year in Review report to deliver key messages and showcase good work.
I wrote the content, took many of the photos, and designed the document for the 16-page report. Content included:
- letter from the Vice-President
- the Facilities Management team
- Featured Projects
- Infrastructure Improvements
- Visions for the Future
The Facilities Management department at London Health Sciences Centre needed to improve its profile within the hospital’s culture. The internal website I developed served to increase transparency and communication, while showcasing the good work done by the department.
I was responsible for writing, photography, and management of the intranet site. A working group arrived at a consensus for the site architecture, which I then refined and developed streamlined content for each of the pages, including some photography.
Layout of a 24-page newsletter for non-profit housing members with advertising, 6 times per year. Electronic edition included bookmarks and hyperlinked advertisements.

I was responsible for developing a fresh, new visual scheme for the Ontario Non-Profit Housing Association’s new blog. The site also needed to be user-friendly enough for other staff to create and edit their own posts.
Content was developed by other staff, while I provided copy editing and tagging for use on the blog.
The site can be seen at writeon.onpha.on.ca.
