Writing Samples

I led a campaign while working at the Nuu-chah-nulth Tribal Council in a remote part of Vancouver Island to raise awareness of a landmark fishing rights case won by First Nations yet not implemented. The Enough Already campaign garnered the support of David Suzuki, Canadian academic, science broadcaster and environmental activist, and created a forum for discussions on Aboriginal fishing rights. 


Through crowd sourced online actions via Twitter, Facebook and email, the Enough Already campaign

garnered over 600 signatures, and retweeted (on Twitter) hundreds of times, drawing the attention of celebrities such as Aboriginal activist and legendary folk singer Buffy Sainte-Marie and Tzeporah Berman, Canadian environmental activist, campaigner and writer.

Online Campaigns

As a copywriter and brand strategist I've had the privilege of working with top companies such as Blacks, SOLO energy bars, Forever 21, and a NYC-based development company (left, below) to create ads that spoke to their target audiences.

Print & Digital Ads

I've worked on several print and digital newsletters from concept to completion as a brand strategist, editorial director, and as a writer.


This example is from UBC Public Affairs that publishes a print and digital version of their newsletter.

Here's an alumni magazine from Emily Carr University of Art and Design that I wrote articles for called Visions.

I've worked with several first-time authors to help them complete book projects and market their work.


Here's what one of those authors said about working with me:

I was so impressed with how Lissa works. She turned a bunch of jumbled up sentences I gave her about myself and turned it into a fantastic bio in just a few days. She even took the time to do additional research. She has an amazing talent for getting the point across in as few words as possible. I can't recommend her enough. Thank you!
