Bee Quammie is a health and social work professional, freelance writer, digital content creator, event producer, and speaker. With a degree in Health Sciences from the University of Western Ontario, Bee has turned her passion for health into a career in mental health research, international health, and acquired brain injury work.
Bee started her personal blog, ‘83 To Infinity, in 2011. Focusing on areas around natural hair care, health & wellness, art & culture and more, ‘83 To Infinity offered her the opportunity to write for digital publications such as Chatelaine, UPTOWN Magazine, For Harriet and The Huffington Post Canada. Bee has been recognized by Black Enterprise as one of the “most impactful and successful voices in the online space,” is a 2013 Canadian Weblog Award nominee, and was the recipient of the Best Blogger Award at the 2014 Black Canadians Awards. After the birth of her daughter in 2014, Bee founded The Brown Suga Mama, a blog focused on motherhood from the perspective of a Black Canadian mom.
Bee has also taken her thoughts, words, and knowledge from behind the computer screen. She has been featured on Arise TV's Our Take in New York City discussing international healthcare, and multiple times on TVO's The Agenda With Steve Paikin, speaking on education & employment for Canadian millenials and the presence of women in Canadian media. Her social media knowledge has enabled her to work with a variety of clientele to help maximize their digital presence. She has spoken at conference and panels across North America, mentors at programs for young girls and women of colour, and has facilitated women's health promotion workshops across Toronto for a provincial health program. Bee produces and hosts events such as Curls, Coils & Cocktails (celebrating natural hair and beauty), Mirror Images (a panel event discussing diversity in media), and The R&B Show (a conversation party focused on love and relationships).
Bee is an accomplished and multi-passionate creative and professional with a knack for storytelling, communication, and outreach, who will continue making an impact on the world around her for years to come. She currently resides in the Greater Toronto Area.
