Dooley Noted

School Isn’t Over Till You Have Some Field Experience


We’re incredibly lucky to have not one, not two, but three interns with us from The University of Winnipeg, PACE program! 

The University of Winnipeg, Professional, Applied and Continuing Education (PACE) program has multiple streams, allowing students to focus their passion and interest into a career. 

Hailing from two of these different post-degree programs (web development and public relations, strategic communications and marketing management) meet our interns:


Web Development Intern: Alexandr Pasko

Dooley PR & Marketing’s web development intern, Alexandr, is a recent graduate from the University of Winnipeg, Professional Applied and Continuing Education program. He knows that web spaces have and will continue to transform modern businesses.

With a background in sales, Alexandr moved to Canada and made a career change to web development. His passion for learning new technologies and keeping up to date with business trends pushed him to explore the digital world and develop excellent websites and online content - including creating short, animated videos to increase the user experience.

When not working to bring incredible online content ideas to life with the Dooley team, Alexandr loves spending time with his family. He can be found travelling and exploring; taking road trips with the family is one of the best ways to do this.

Marketing & Communications Intern: Alina Oliinyk

Alina’s creativity, analytical mind, and passion for digital marketing and content creation, combined with her management skills help organizations working with Dooley PR & Marketing reach their business goals. Always learning, she supplements her passion as a visual storyteller by keeping up with the latest trends and algorithms in social media and digital marketing.

A year ago, Alina moved to the heart of Canada from Ukraine to begin a new life and continue her career as a marketing professional. In her suitcase, she packed up her marketing, PR and project management experience from her time in the government sector. She complimented this experience with the Public Relations and Marketing Management diploma program from The University of Winnipeg, Professional, Applied and Continuing Education post-degree program.  

When not learning and developing compelling, story-driven content, Alina enjoys spending time with her family and friends. She also loves exploring Manitoba’s hiking trails, experimenting in the kitchen, making sure her plants get love, water and sunshine, and trying her feet at beginner ballet.

Marketing & Communications Intern: Danica Hidalgo

With four years of management and client relations experience in hospitality, Danica is a problem solver and team leader. As a certified photographer, self-taught videographer and master of the written word, Danica’s storytelling pulls people into learning more about our clients’ compelling stories. Her goal is to promote her passion for creativity and content creation in Manitoba’s diverse public relations and marketing workforce.

Danica joins Dooley PR & Marketing as a recent graduate of the Public Relations, Marketing, and Strategic Communications diploma program from The University of Winnipeg, Professional, Applied, and Continuing Education post-degree program. In addition to this most recent academic endeavour, Danica holds a Bachelor of Science in Hotel and Restaurant Management from the University of Santo Tomas.

Danica spends time in the community by volunteering for the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) Manitoba as part of the professional development and events committee. When she’s not out and about pursuing her passions, she can be found playing video games, performing Broadway musicals in her kitchen and eating her way through the culinary adventures that Winnipeg and the world has to offer.
