Shauna 

With a passion for storytelling matched by her work ethic and enthusiasm, 
Shauna has been creating with clients since 2012. While her adventurous nature has taken her to many parts of the globe, she is most excited for her newest venture, as Creator and Director of Lily Graham Communications & Events. 

Shauna has always had an interest in writing. After graduating with honours from the collaborative MTP Journalism Broadcasting Program at Western University and Fanshawe College, Shauna quickly landed herself a role at AM980, in London, ON. 

After spending a year behind the microphone, Shauna got her first taste of events at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival. Immediately entranced by the fast pace and adrenaline that comes with producing an event, Shauna began working with EVNT MGMT, formerly For The Love of Food. Over the next six years, she worked in event creation and execution, focusing on VIP experiences, budget management and operational planning. From intimate parties and weddings to conferences and music festivals, she worked on various projects including, Field Trip Festival, Taste of Toronto, Digital Dreams, Boots & Hearts, CAPP Conference, WayHome Music and Arts Festival, The Big Feastival, and BPM. 

In 2017, Shauna's adventures led her to Australia, where she began working at Bennett's on Bellarine: a small, quirky, winery on the coast. Soon after her arrival, Bennett's began construction on their Cellar Door. Shauna played a vital role in the next stage of growth for Bennett's, focusing on system and brand development, marketing and communications, community relations and CD management.

Since moving back to Canada in 2019, Shauna has taken the entrepreneurial leap to create Lily Graham Communications & Events. Inspired and named after her parents, her dream is to collaborate and create with kick-ass brands. 

When Shauna isn't hustling hard for her clients, you can find her curled up with a good book (and great wine), laughing with friends, or taking a breath and moving outside enjoying the great outdoors. 

Courtney 

mover, groover & boss of pr at Lily Graham

Originally from the Greater Toronto Area, Courtney began her career working with some of the biggest brands in the entertainment industry including Alliance Films and eOne Films, supporting with events for their star-studded Toronto International Film Festival premieres. From there, she took the TV and music industry by storm working in PR & Communications for Bell Media, responsible for Much, MTV, M3, E! programming, and supporting on the red carpet for the Much Music Video Awards.

 

In 2014, Agency-life took Courtney to Vancouver, B.C., where she managed various PR and digital media strategies for client portfolios across the lifestyle, entertainment, arts and culture, and consumer industries. Some of her clients at Jive PR & Digital included Whistler Film Festival, Fan Expo Vancouver, Granville Island Brewing, Art! Vancouver, and Earth's Choice.

 

In 2016, Courtney went on to the ethical beauty brand Lush Cosmetics North America, where she was the mastermind of several acclaimed integrated marketing and activism campaigns and stunts that generated global product sellouts, new category sales records, organic top-tier celebrity and influencer collaborations, and shot various viral media frenzies into action.

 

Most recently, Courtney was responsible for overseeing media relations and crisis communications pertaining to public art, music and other cultural initiatives for the City of Vancouver.

 

Courtney is an exceptionally creative brand builder and disruptive storyteller, with a knack for taking strategic risks that reap significant payout and record-breaking results for every brand that she has worked with. 

 

When Courtney is not causing online and offline collisions between kick-ass brands and people, you can find her dancing & choreographing, styling photoshoots (follow @durtylewks), and globetrotting to the beat of her own drum.
