Rebecca’s O&B Story

When Rebecca graduated with a journalism degree in 2011, she dreamed of landing a job that allowed her to combine her passion for writing with her love of food and wine. Since joining O&B in 2012, she has been involved in many different aspects of marketing and communications, including menu editing, social media, digital content, donations, public relations, website management, and copywriting. O&B has continued to invest in Rebecca’s learning and development, offering tuition reimbursement for several continuing education courses at the University of Toronto. As O&B continues to expand, so does the opportunity for Rebecca to gain further experience and expertise.
