Rebecca Zamon is the senior editor of lifestyle with The Huffington Post Canada, and can't really think of a better job than one that lets her read and write interesting stories on everything from food to health to relationships. Rebecca previously worked in magazines at Transcontinental Media and headed up the lifestyle department at Sun Media. Her Twitter bio (@RebZam) describes her as a "reader, writer, eater, Torontonian, fancy geek, summer cyclist," which pretty much sums up how she spends her time outside of work.
