Account and Community Manager

With her diverse background and love of a good story, Joie Coles brings a range of unique skills to her role as Account and Community Manager for MKT Communications.
Customer service, check. Construction, check. Book editing, publishing and marketing, check. Sales, check. It’s this breadth experience that brought Joie to MKT’s Calgary office to wear a variety of hats including social media, web content, business development and client support.
A recent University of Calgary grad who completed degrees in both English and Communications, Joie is passionate about all things online including multimedia, online marketing and social media. She is also an accomplished multi-tasker who successfully juggled family life while attending university full-time for five years while helping husband Jason raise their two daughters, Hailey and Kacie.
A problem-solver with a can-do attitude, boundless energy and a ready laugh, Joie embraces every challenge from a unique yet logical angle, earning her the nickname of ‘Jo Of All Trades’. (Her MKT peeps are considering gifting her with a special hat adorned with interchangeable banners that proclaim: ‘Today I’ll Be Your I.T. Representative’ or ‘It’s Tuesday, I’m On Twitter’.)
In her spare time, Joie can often be found wrangling words as an editor for her father -– mystery writer Richard Cozicar – or soaking up the sun at her family cabin at Gull Lake. Joie is also an on-again, off-again runner who is training for her first 10K run – she’ll be part of the Scotiabank Calgary Marathon in late May 2016 with her fellow MKT team members. If that’s not enough, she’s a Girl Guide leader who enjoys hanging with the family pets, her dog Chub, two dwarf hamsters and a beta fish.
