Jessie grew up in Ontario but has always been a west coaster at heart. Part of the CPAWS family since 2012, she spent two years on the CPAWS National team before following her heart to the incredible mountains, forests, and coast of B.C., joining the CPAWS-BC team in early 2014. She brings with her over five years of experience working on regional and national issues within the environmental non-profit sector, and an unstoppable dedication to protecting the wild landscapes that sustain her sense of adventure.

Jessie coordinates CPAWS-BC’s terrestrial conservation campaigns, working to protect treasured places like the Flathead Valley and the South Okanagan grasslands. She carries with her a deep respect for B.C.’s incredible lands, wildlife, and people, and can usually be found exploring B.C.’s endless backcountry.

It was bigger, better, and wilder than I had imagined.
