Regi Jones (They/Them) is the National Training & Curriculum Specialist for Life Lab. Regi grew up and attended university in North Carolina. Their passion for education began while working with groups of Burmese youth in the summer, which launched Regi into moving to New Orleans to dive into their curiosity about the connection between food and education. Regi primarily focuses on how food can be used to connect people across cultures and how what we eat is shaped by our own ancestral connections. When they're not thinking about how to draw young people into those conversations, Regi loves any outdoor activity, trying new foods, and playing basketball in the park.
