Financial Writer

Sarah Twomey has been a media/public relations professional with Desjardins Group since 2008. As part of her mandate, she writes personal financial articles that have been published in Canada.com, the Vancouver Courier, Metro News, 24 Hours, the Calgary Herald, the Montreal Gazette and the Toronto Sun, to name a few.

She's also passionate about pop-culture in all its forms (TV, Film, Music, PR Buzz). And each September she turns into a TIFFaholic. As an avid TIFF Patron member and participant, Sarah sees an average of 15 films per festival — more if she's really reluctant to sleep for 10 days straight. Seeing the fest as one big adventure, she also has a knack of meeting random celebs out and about in TO.
