Jessica Linzey

Jessica Linzey was born in Whitehorse, Yukon, and raised in Ottawa and Halifax. Though she spent a lot of time in BC as a kid (her dad is from Chiliwack, her mum from the interior), Jessica has only recently begun to explore the province for herself. She loves the diversity of landscape here---the mountains, the sea, the desert, the rainforest, the cities, the agricultural lands, the ghost towns.

A recent graduate of UBC's School of Journalism, Jessica has already worked in print (The Coast, The Globe and Mail, The Tyee, Momentum Magazine), radio (CBC Radio One's The Sunday Edition), television (Al Jazeera English's The Riz Khan Show), and live event production (The Frontline Club, NewsXchange). Once, she took a break from journalism and spent a year in Italy, where she tended vines, fell out of olive trees, learned to cook with what she could forage, and helped restore a medieval castle. Jessica is currently in Haiti, making radio documentaries.
