Kaija McDonough is co-owner and Chief Marketing Officer for SocialRise Inc. and loves her role helping local businesses successfully expand their reach and rise to the top with strategic marketing!
Although much of her focus is on social media and marketing, Kaija’s love for dancing came long before TikTok! She started Latin dancing with her mother as a child at every community dance and grew up with the sounds of Salsa from the likes of Tito Puente and the Buena Vista Social Club in her home.
Kaija has taken many Latin dance classes with Zoi Monroy in Sudbury over the last several years and through studios in Toronto while she lived there for university.
In 2018, she joined Northern Latin Flavour, a ladies latin styling dance group led by Zoi. As a group they have performed all over Sudbury from the Canada Day Multicultural Celebration to the Greek Festival, and recently the New Year’s Eve Bash on Eastlink TV.
Kaija is very excited to be a part of DWESS as a pro for a consecutive year, sharing her love of Latin dance with her partner and the community and of course, helping raise awareness and funds for such an amazing cause!
