I’m proud to be part of a team deeply rooted in support for Indigenous leadership and am excited to be engaging in meaningful policy work that enables creative climate solutions and community-driven conservation outcomes.


Jessie Corey joined Nature United as the Policy Advisor, British Columbia in early 2024. In this role, she provides strategic leadership, technical expertise and relationship building with governments and other partners in B.C. to advance Natural Climate Solutions and to support Indigenous leadership in conservation. 

Jessie has spent the last 15 years working on conservation programs and leading conservation campaigns in B.C. and across Canada. Most recently, she led a collaborative nation-wide campaign to advance progress on Canada’s 2030 biodiversity protection targets, working with governments and partners to address the biodiversity and climate crises through protected areas and nature-based solutions. She is an advocate, communicator and big picture thinker who works to support transformational change through sustainable policies and practices. 

She grew up on the unceded territory of the Anishnaabe Algonquin Nation in Ottawa and is now grateful to live on the territories of the xwməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), kwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Peoples in Vancouver. She loves paddling, biking and camping and, when she can’t get outside, she can be found with her nose in a book or in her kitchen eating snacks and trying out new recipes.
