Joanna’s career in journalism took a slight turn when she discovered her love of cooking. As a writer, recipe developer and co-founder of Good Pepper, a Chicago-based digital content agency, she helps food and beverage brands tell their stories. She lives in Rogers Park where she loves exploring the neighborhood’s diverse food scene with her husband and spending time at the beach with her dog, a feisty terrier named Franco.
Why are you volunteering with Pilot Light?
I feel very fortunate to work in the food industry and want to get more involved in community programs surrounding food and education. I really connected with Pilot Light’s mission and am very excited to help in those efforts.
What is your favorite food or meal?
Pasta. Pretty much any kind of pasta.
