The Full Story
Hi, I'm Brandi and I am passionate about helping brands find their voice in the local and global arenas!
Brandi O’Neill is the founder and CEO of Social B Agency and the Brand Manager at The Lady Alliance.
Her life and career have taken her on a wild ride - from Calgary, AB to the East Kootenays in BC and all over the world.
She started in the Interior Design field in Calgary, AB over 15 years ago, which culminated at the peak of her career into operating as the Sales and Design Manager at a prestigious golf and housing community in Cranbrook, BC. She is well versed in the design, marketing, and real estate arenas, and combines her eye for design and desire to market effectively to the right audience into the online digital world.
Simultaneously, she was a flight attendant for almost 20 years with WestJet and had the opportunity to travel the world and experience the tourism industry firsthand before retiring in 2021. And as a previous small business owner of a super cool, startup bookstore/cafe called Paper and Cup, she has the knowledge and passion for everything entrepreneur and women-powered.
Always updating her skills, she enrolled in the BCIT Media Techniques and Marketing Communications program and has successfully completed courses in Podcasting, Digital Marketing, Adobe Suite including InDesign and Illustrator, and Media Communications. She is now educated in most social media, website development, and creator platforms including: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, TikTok, Snapchat, YouTube, Wix, Shopify, Squarespace, WordPress. Her Social Media Management software knowledge includes Later, Loomly, Canva and more.
She serves as a Board member on both the Kimberley and District Chamber of Commerce and Tourism Kimberley, combining her passion for business and travel and representing the business and tourism communities for the East Kootenays of Canada. She manages the social media accounts for the Chamber, and she is a regular photography contributor to Tourism Kimberley, Cranbrook Tourism, Columbia Basin Trust, Travel Columbia Valley, Tourism Radium, Tourism Invermere, The Valley Voice, Visit Kootenays, Kootenay Rockies Tourism and more.
Personally, she is an explorer with a zest for life, choosing to say yes to all new opportunities and adventures, and single parenting her two similarly adventurous souls. She’s usually busy taking her little family on a journey of living life to the fullest through travel and experiences, while balancing that wild side with her grounded business mind and expertise and honing her skills as a photographer.
Creating Social B Agency was a no-brainer - her passion for travel, the outdoors, new experiences, and online digital storytelling and brand management, positioned her to be in the perfect place to offer her expertise in business, design, tourism, and marketing.
