ERIN O'LEARY

CHAIR

Erin is a partner at Cohen Highley LLP and practices exclusively family law. Erin was born and raised in London.  She obtained her Juris Doctor and a combined Honours degree in Film and Anthropology from Western University.  The LCRC philosophy of engaging with food as it is being grown rings true with Erin and her family, who love to spend time together in the garden and the kitchen.

Christine first got involved with LCRC as a volunteer. Their mission to improve the collective well-being of the community through food education resonated with her belief in the power of home cooking.

KELSEY NICHOLLS

DIRECTOR

Kelsey is the Community Engagement Coordinator with ReForest London, London’s largest local environmental charity. Kelsey began volunteering with LCRC because she believes in the power of food literacy to promote more environmentally-friendly plates, from growing food locally, reducing food waste and knowing the resources that go into our food. Kelsey brings experience in volunteer management, community outreach and the non-profit sector. She holds a Master’s Degree in Environment & Sustainability from Western University, during which she studied ways to foster pro-environmental community action.
