Gillian Costello, MA., GradDip P.R., BA
Gillian Costello is the Director of Communications, and a past member, of the IABC NL board. Since entering the communications field in 2006, Gillian has been responsible for leading marketing and communications initiatives across a wide spectrum of fields – from an international film festival, to the challenging world of the non-profit sector, and into the complex halls of health care.
"I have had some really wonderful experiences throughout my career," says Gillian. "One of the stand out moments is riding a Komatik across the sea ice and through Nain to help a client connect with one of their key stakeholders. Experiences like this one helped me develop an appreciation and highlight the importance of the role of communications, and the impact those connections can make. I have carried that lesson with me throughout my career."
Gillian holds a Masters in Political Science from Memorial University, as well as a Post-Graduate Diploma (Honours) in Public Relations. She currently leads communications for the Association of Registered Nurses of Newfoundland and Labrador as a Communications Officer.
Gillian's favourite things include movie night and having adventures with her husband, daughter and son.
