Jessica McQuoid 

I am a former investment professional who has always loved food. After the birth of my daughter I reevaluated my career and decided to follow my passion into a career in food. I began taking classes at George Brown College Culinary School and got a certificate in Holistic Nutrition from the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition. My passion for food also lead me to Ryerson University where I began studying food security and food policy, recently I aiding in the rewriting of the course Gender and Food Security with my sections primarily focusing on the intersections of race and food insecurity in Canada, the United States and in a global context. 

I am also an avid gardener (currently studying urban agriculture in my spare time). A former NCAA college basketball player and current runner, a lover of jazz and a proud mom.
