Senior Team Leader / Server / Fermentation Specialist

Jess

I spent over 16 years in BC, doing everything from completing grad school to rock climbing and tree planting, there has always been one constant in my life – food and the restaurants where I served it!

From growing my own, to cooking, canning and fermenting, I’ve always been passionate about food. Beyond the nutritional components, I’m fascinated by the political and socio-economic aspects of food, and the social, communal and environmental systems it supports and maintains.

I recently moved back home to be closer to my family and because Nova Scotia has a unique and vibrant attitude towards food, local production, quality, sustainability and societal health. I was looking for a new East Coast restaurant to be my home away from home, and I knew I have found it with the Studio East team.

It is a joy to work for an establishment that has such integrity and a vision that reflects my values and passion for local sustainable food. I look forward to the opportunity to be part of a collaborative community that pushes the boundaries of creativity… I’m so glad to be home!

My favourite menu items are the Studio Tacos and the Rice Bowl!
