About the Author

About Jess:

I currently reside in Grimsby, Ontario. I hold a BA from Brock University with a Major in History and a Minor in Political Science, and am very passionate about local history. Having managed a local historic site during the summers of my undergrad, I’ve come to appreciate the rich history of the Niagara region.
