À propos de Jazmine

Je suis un fier Townshipper, descendant de colons des régions de Stanstead et de Magog. J’ai étudié l’histoire et les études autochtones à l’Université Bishop’s et j’ai complété ma maîtrise en études de l’information à McGill. Je suis archiviste en chef du Centre de ressources des Cantons-de-l’Est, et j’ai également travaillé avec d’autres organismes patrimoniaux au Québec et en Ontario depuis 2017. Je suis passionnée par la préservation et le partage de notre riche histoire locale.
