Jessica Young is a writer and researcher based in Toronto and an MA graduate from Ryerson University. She has a wide range of experience -- from not-for-profits to technology consulting to architecture firms. Her work reflects her diverse range of interests: women's history, city building, heritage conservation, museums, Canadian literature, film, and music.
She has worked with organizations like the Heritage Foundation of Halton Hills, Heritage Toronto, and the Modern Literature and Culture Research Centre. Much like her favourite literary heroine, Anne Shirley, Jessica brings her passion for learning into everything she does: “Isn’t it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive — it’s such an interesting world.”
