HEY, I’M CHELSEA VERN!
I recently earned my bachelor’s degree in Professional Communication with a minor in Sport Marketing at Ryerson University and I am back at Ryerson to pursue my master’s degree in Digital Media. My goal is to build a career in marketing and content production in the sports and film entertainment industries. I am driven through storytelling and creating unique experiences via digital content and live entertainment.
I have spent the past 7+ years developing my toolkit by working in various positions in sport. I worked for the Canadian Women’s Hockey League where I had the opportunity to wear various hats assisting with PR communications, marketing, and sponsorship. Currently, I hold five part-time jobs that range between working in game operations, photography, video content production, graphic design, social media, and marketing. My current employers include the Toronto Maple Leafs, Toronto FC, Toronto Argos, the National Hockey League and Ryerson University.
This year I was offered the opportunity to wear the Executive Producer hat where I oversee the Digital Management of SportTokz With SportProfz and participate in the creative effort, from attracting/scheduling panel talent, scripting, marketing, advisory and supervising capacities. Other responsibilities include brand management, marketing, website admin, video post-production, podcast production and digital graphics.
My friends would describe me as a passionate, energetic personality, that is very driven with everything I set my mind to. My coworkers would describe me as a professional, hard-working individual. What I believe my valued quality is that I am always eager to learn new skills and improve on the ones I have with new ideas.
