Sarah Clarke

our team

We come from all walks of life and bring together a combination of skills and assets that would not be present anywhere else.

Stephanie Adams

Stephanie Adams

General Manager

Dig a little deeper into Stephanie’s background and you’ll discover a hidden past. It’s not dark but if she slipped and fell it could have been dangerous. In her younger years Stephanie represented Western Australia TWICE in National Figure Skating Tournaments. She shares that she was involved with figure skating for over 7 years but was shy when it came to telling us whether she could still perform a triple lutz!

Sarah Gladue (SJ)

Sarah Gladue (SJ)

Finance & Operations Manager

Get to know SJ well enough and she might just share where her nickname came from! In the meantime, it’s SJ who keeps the wheels turning and the lights on at Dufferin Media, keeping the whole team organized. When she isn’t here, chances are you’ll find her at the stables, supporting her daughter’s serious horseback riding habit!

Spencer Clarke

Spencer Clarke

Webmaster

If ever there was a person destined to design a “sarcasm” emoji, it’s Spencer Clarke! Spencer is our resident (and avid) gamer enthusiast but it’s his sarcastic sense of humour that always has the Dufferin Media team laughing. World of Warcraft is his game of choice and his favourite choice of words is this office famous quote of the day, “Stay off my lawn!”

Miglena Ivanova

Miglena Ivanova

Accessibility Officer & Web Designer

Enjoying nature with the dynamic rhyming duo of hiking and biking is what Miglena likes to do when she’s not serving as our webmaster expert. “Kind of” healthy, she loves salad and dark chocolate but her battery is charged by coffee! We’re thrilled to announce that Miglena recently became fully certified in website accessibility compliance and AODA standards. She’ll help bring your website up to date and accessible to everyone! Like Sarah, Miglena is another camping aficionado, spending most summer weekends camping with her family.

Kelly McConnell

Kelly McConnell

Social Media Manager

Calling Orangeville home for her entire life, Kelly is known around these parts for her equal parts sarcasm and humour! She has been in the business as a professional graphic designer for over 20 years and knows a thing or two about how to make “slamdunk” sensational designs for our clients!

Lisa Somers

Lisa Somers

Social Media Manager

Getting “social” with Lisa is a breeze personally and professionally! She loves music and always has a soundtrack playing in her head. With the music always on – it’s hard not to find inspiration in everything she does – including making her own homemade ice cream flavors! Not surprisingly, when she’s not working at Dufferin Media, she enjoys spinning records and in her spare time hiking in fair weather and cross-country skiing in the winter with her family is what keeps Lisa both happy and busy.

Christy Brighton - Account Manager

Christy Brighton

Account Manager

Raised in Orangeville, Christy is someone who is passionate about small business and working with amazingly creative and enterprising individuals. An artist and entrepreneur at heart, Christy enjoys spinning her creative wheels in all aspects of her life, whether she is inventing a meal for the family, brainstorming a business idea, creating art with her daughters, or crafting blogs for her website. Curious by nature, Christy is often learning something new or creating something new. She lives in East Garafraxa with her partner, their two daughters, two cats and a flock of chickens.

Ryan Hancock - Digital Marketing Advisor

Ryan Hancock

Digital Marketing Advisor

What can we say about Ryan? Well in truth we can either say a lot or we can let music do the talking! That’s because not only is Hancock our very knowledgeable and personable Sales Manager, he’s also a guitarist and lead singer with the musically talented Campfire Poets! Don’t believe us? Look them up – you’ll be glad you did!

Shelley Bergant - Community Relationship Manager

Shelley Bergant

Community Relationship Manager

Perhaps fittingly, our gregarious, outgoing, and friendly team member Shelly loves to travel! That’s great because you’ll often see her traveling out and about in our community, making lots of new friends and business associates along the way. Shelly is married with a young adult son and has enjoyed a diverse career working with flowers, as a photographic journalist and even running for local school trustee.

client testimonials

We have been working with them for over a year and a half and highly recommend them if you need help with your social media, content creation and so many other things! The whole team has always been professional and great to work with and can come up with a marketing plan that fits you and your business.

Angela Burley - World's Best Cream
Angela Burley

World’s Best Cream

I hired Dufferin media originally to create my logo and to revamp my website and they did a fantastic job with that. They then made me aware of their social media services, an area in which my business had almost no presence. I gave it a shot, hiring them to do facebook and instagram ads for my contracting business. Stephanie Adams was in charge of creation for my account making very stylish and relevant ads on both platforms. I went from being booked 2 months in advance to being booked 12 months in advance in the space of 3 months and am turning down work daily. The price is very affordable, especially considering the results and job generation and I honestly couldn’t be happier. Best business decision I have made in years.

Destiny Properties - Rick

Destiny Properties

When we were opening a new business, there were so many challenges to consider. Taking the time to develop logos, a website and social media was one challenge that we really did not relish! Fortunately, Dufferin Media was able to develop, put in place and maintain these very important media features – and in record time. The creativity and professionalism of the team we have been dealing with has been, truly exceptional. It will be a pleasure to be continuing to have Dufferin Media work with us and would highly recommend their services.
