This year I have committed to having #fiftytwocoffees with fellow young professionals in our community. Once a week I have been randomly paired with someone to meet, learn, and make a new connection! The idea is to bring the young business community together and grow a stronger North Bay!

This week, I got to chat with Alexandra McDermid, she’s a Public Relations Specialist for the North Bay Parry Sound District Health Unit.

We had a great chat about the differences and similarities in working in media and with the media.

Alexandra has a background in public relations and marketing and has worked in jobs in both those areas before this role, which she has been at for the last five months.

It was great to meet Alexandra and get to know her.

Nine cups down, 43 more to go!

Follow me and other young professionals in our journey over the course of the year by following the #fiftytwocoffees tag on social media platforms.
