Director of Operations
Marissa believes that food can be a vehicle for social change. It is a right, not a privilege. It brings people together to share our similarities and celebrate our differences. She saw this in action when she co-created Seeds For Change, a not-for-profit organization that developed and implemented community food gardens in schools and under-utilized land across York Region.
As Director of Operations she works to create an ideal team culture, embedding food justice, strong values and diversity into all our programs, including our training and hiring practices. She aims to foster an environment where people are empowered to do their best, motivated to create solutions and feel their actions can make a positive impact.
Outside of work, you can find Marissa connecting with family and friends, rock climbing, eating at her fave local spots and dancing up a storm to 90’s tunes!
