Davida joined Historica Canada in 2010 to travel across the country collecting service stories with The Memory Project. She subsequently worked on Black History, the War of 1812 and Heritage Minute programming—including production in 2012 of the first new Minutes since 2005. Davida has a B.A. from McGill and an M.A. in Art History from the University of Toronto. She enjoys all forms of culture, ranging from eating poutine to admiring the paintings of Jean-Paul Riopelle. Her writing has appeared in a number of publications including The Globe and Mail, Toronto Life, and the University of Toronto Art History Journal. Her favourite Heritage Minute is Orphans—she is really glad they kept their Irish names.
