Work History

Program Coordinator - Master Control

EastLink TV

The ultimate multitask position. At Eastlink TV, Master  Control is a combination of television playback,  video traffic, recording and Video On Demand services.

In this field it is required to understand the complex network of video signals into and out of the station.  To be a valuable asset to the department,  knowledge of the importance of sponsorship is imperative as well as is having an eye for graphic placement, spelling and on air delivery.

In this position I was instrumental in creating the work flow for the Video On Demand services for Eastlink  TV. This included the creation and implementation of a daily reporting system in Microsoft Excel that was easy to follow, editable and share-able within several departments.

Group Fitness  Instructor

Locker Room Health and Fitness Club

"Awesome, energetic, easy to follow and lots of fun!" - Tammy

"Allison genuinely cares about her participants." - Holly

During my time at the Locker Room Health and Fitness club, I was one of four Group Fitness Instructors who delivered effective and fun fitness classes within the facility.

I was responsible for rolling out the new CXWorks core strength classes, Group RX RIP total body strength classes, Zumba® Fitness classes and more. I also created a base of dedicated class members and recruited members to the club and classes who were not previously involved. To do so included the use of several social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and my personal Zumba® Fitness website.

I believe my time at the Locker Room was valued as a fitness motivator and as an overall enthusiastic and challenge-taking employee.

Recreation Programmer/Youth Leader

Sport Nova Scotia

This contract position was a joint venture between Sport Nova Scotia and the Town of Hantsport to deliver quality recreational activities and sports programs to the youth of the town. This included organizing the town's recreation programs in the summer months and assisting the Physical Education teacher at the Primary to Grade 9 levels throughout the school year. 

I gained extensive knowledge of the principles which help to include all age groups, abilities and skills into everyday play and organized sport aimed at increasing physical activity in children. This included organizing an end of year Dance Festival for the entire school in which each student participated and performed. I also wrote, directed and built the sets for a play which was performed by students in grades three to six.

This position helped me develop my ability to speak comfortably to large groups and give clear and concise instructions. 

I formed a very trusting relationship with all students, parents and community volunteers.

Diploma - Broadcast Journalism

Nova Scotia Community College

The wide array of volunteer experiences I garnered during my time in the Radio and Television Arts program prepared me for a multitude of media related positions.

One of the most exciting opportunities I received during this time was a two-week media relations exercise at the Cornwallis Military Base. At this exercise our group  trained the Canadian, Swiss, German and Italian military personnel about media communication and relations. Examination interviews, produced newscasts and newspaper using in-game scenarios gave soldiers a real-life media experience.

I also represented the Radio and Television Arts department at the Atlantic Journalism Awards in 2006 as an invited guest to the awards ceremony. 

Was hired for a full time television production position before my expected graduation date.
