Richelle Volk

My freelance journey began in the fall of 2019. After finishing a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science, I jumped first into the world of non-profit and then into a marketing role in Canada’s legal cannabis industry. While I gained a ton of knowledge from these experiences, I was eager to take on more opportunities to develop my skills as a marketer in the digital age. Never being one to be complacent or without a side hustle, I began to take on freelance social media projects for friends in my network. My freelance business has been steadily growing ever since.

I’ve dabbled in several different areas, including social media management and strategy, content creation, public relations, professional writing, and brand-building. After a while, it became clear that I should round up all my services within one neat little package that I could offer to help businesses who wanted to grow their marketing. Thus, my brainchild Rise Media was born. Rise has given me the opportunity to work with some amazing clients to take their content to the next level.

When I’m not busy with my freelance work, I’m working on building this awesome community over here at Creator Canteen with my friend Keith. I firmly believe that the more success you achieve in life, the more you should give back and share that knowledge with others. Creator Canteen has led to many exciting opportunities to inspire and mentor new creators - I can’t wait to see where it goes from here!
