Michaela Konken

Hailing from B.C.’s Interior, Michaela brings her passion and drive to the Coast Comms team. She helps clients achieve their desired outcomes by accurately presenting information in relevant and easily digestible formats to reach target audiences. Michaela is an experienced consultant with agency experience and has spent time working in an industry association at the Electrical Contractors Association of British Columbia.

In addition to working on various political campaigns at provincial and federal levels—most prominently playing key roles in a 2018 bid for leadership of the BC Liberal Party and leading communications for a Vancouver candidate’s 2020 B.C. election campaign— her past roles with non-profits provide her with a well-rounded and innovative approach to communications.

Michaela is a graduate of the University of Ottawa with an Honors Bachelor of Social Sciences in International Studies and Modern Languages. In addition to studying in Ottawa, she completed an academic exchange in Moscow, Russia and an internship in Vietnam at a non-governmental organization working to reduce the number of deaths and injuries caused by cluster bombs and other munitions remaining after the Vietnam War.

Outside the office, Michaela spends her time challenging herself on indoor rock-climbing walls and playing a Star Wars role-playing game (similar to Dungeons and Dragons).
