About Jessica Lara

I am passionate about storytelling and the power of voice to transcend social and cultural barriers.  

A little bit about my background: Growing up as a first generation Canadian in Montreal, the child of South African and Indian immigrant parents, I needed to make meaning of my history and belonging, to find a sense of place and understand my background. I turned to stories for that and have been inspired to use the lens of storytelling as a way to make meaning of my world, and as a vehicle to help others.  

I believe that I can bring my skills as a journalist and audio producer to any creative job as well as my strength in writing and editing and my passion for telling stories.  I can do interviews, editing, cutting and mixing and sound design for stories for public radio as well as for independent podcasts.  As a mom of four, spanning elementary school to college, I know how to multi-task and work under pressure  to get things done!
