FcF: Tell us about yourself?
Tieja: I’m Tieja MacLaughlin, the Founder and namesake of TIEJA Inc. Communications. As a Communications Strategist, I assist individuals, executives and brands who are experiencing crisis in the form of online shaming, negative press, or reputational damage. I’m also sometimes referred to as a problem solver, or ‘fixer’.
Prior to founding my own firm, I worked in the sports industry and held various communications positions with Hockey Canada, Rogers Sportsnet, the Ottawa Senators (NHL), Kitchener Rangers (OHL) and Canadian Women’s Hockey League. Some career highlights include providing coverage of the 2010 NFL ProBowl and the 2012 IIHF World Junior Championships.
I have a Bachelor of Arts (BA) from Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, ON, and have completed additional studies in Journalism and Law. I’m also very active in the community as a volunteer with local organizations including the Canadian Mental Health Association and Peacebuilders Canada, and am an advocate for digital literacy and restorative justice.
