For the last couple years, Kylie has been working at McCann Toronto, there, she has learned the art of collaborating with many different people from all creative backgrounds, personalities and creative styles. She is an adaptive team player who thrives in an environment where fellow creative-types can bounce ideas off of one another.

At McCann, Kylie had the wonderful opportunity to work with many of their clients. She is well versed with, digital, social, CRM, OOH and radio.

In her free time, Kylie enjoys taking photographs. Before her career in advertising, Kylie taught photography. She is a graduate of Sheridan’s Photography program. Additionally, Kylie has experience assisting photographers in a studio environment. Her teaching and studio experience has come in handy when creating content and presenting ideas to clients.

With a background in visual arts, much of what inspires her comes from art and it’s history. Kylie tries to immerse herself in a variety of different mediums, from sculpture to painting, film to figure drawing. She’s always open to trying something new.
