I appreciate that our organization applies creative solutions to the large-scale conservation challenges that we face, one that prioritizes the well-being of people and communities alongside nature.


Jordan started at Nature United in January of 2022 and supports the Indigenous-Led Conservation and Natural Climate Solutions programs for British Columbia. Before this, she worked as a Project Director with The Nature Conservancy in California, leading a Dynamic Water Management project that included assessing the feasibility of establishing a water trust in the state. In that role, she also oversaw elements of BirdReturns, a program that combines farmland management with innovations in big data, crowd-sourcing, and financial incentives to secure thousands of acres of habitat for migratory birds annually. 

Before this, Jordan held several positions at the National Audubon Society’s California program, including fundraising, advocacy, conservation strategy development, and program implementation. She holds an MBA from Santa Clara University, and a Bachelor of Environmental Studies from the University of Waterloo.

Originally from Vancouver, B.C., Jordan is excited to be back in her home province with her young daughter and near family. In her spare time, she can be found exploring the natural beauty of the Island with her daughter and teaching her to ski.
