Meet the Publican: Marianne
Marianne is one of our newest Publicans, bringing her infinite wisdom and uplifting spirit to the team. Get to know her a little bit better as she answers 5 fun questions!
1. What’s your favourite meal?
The ‘asado’ – lunch or dinner (or both!) – orchestrated by any one of our talented Latin American ‘chef’ friends…hanging outside by the asado pit with my boys and 2-3 dozen of our dearest spanish speaking friends.
2. What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?
Be present always. Appreciate every moment along the way – the good and even the not so good.
3. What’s your spirit animal?
Hmmm…I’d like to say ‘horse’ but that might be wishful thinking…perhaps a feline, snow leopard (because it is Canada after all).
4. What did you want to be when you were little?
A free spirit…
5. What social impact issue means a lot to you?
Passionate about many issues (obviously as a Publican): equality, inclusiveness and having a voice, being good to the environment and especially food sustainability are all on a much longer list, but if I absolutely had to choose one issue it would have to be Health (with a special bent toward Mental Health)…without your health, it’s not easy to care about anything else.
