"Meat" the Team

The Crust, Wanda Baker - Founder

With over twenty five years experience in marketing communications, events, social media, promotions, project management and pizza eating, Wanda is excited to have an event in Calgary that speaks to the masses. As one of the original master minds behind the inception of YYC Pizza Week, and experiencing several trials and tribulations along the way, Wanda is grateful to have such a strong team of hard working volunteers involved in helping pull off this delicious city wide event now entering it's fourth year. It definitely takes a Village.

When not planning food events (she is also the founder of the Culinary Race), she spends her days food blogging, recipe testing, writing, and managing social media accounts. She loves to hang with her husband and kids, take off on fun family adventures, partake in food events and wine nights, travel the world, and teach her kids about the joys of cooking.

THE PINEAPPLE - REBECCA FREDERICK

Rebecca is a Calgary-based Graphic Designer with a passion for all things creative and quirky. She spends her days designing logos, print projects and websites for her clients and wouldn’t have it any other way! When it comes to pizza, she loves all kinds (especially Hawaiian) and her Chihuahua Elliot would agree!

The (Green) Olive - Katie Novak

Katie believes in the power of community, communication, and creativity, and loves to bring all of these things to life on social media. This Ontario native now calls Calgary home, and she loves all of the amazing opportunity that there is in this city. By day Katie works in Education and Marketing, and she is also involved in many other Calgary projects and organizations including Beakerhead and Inn From the Cold. Katie enjoys photography, writing, reading, sushi, and of course all pizza; but unlike her favorite pizza topping (olives, must be green!), she's never salty. 

The Spicy Jalapeño - Goodwill Carlos
