Stewardship & Conservation Planning Specialist
Diploma of Technology with Distinction
BA Political Science and Environmental Studies
Jocelyn has been working with environmental non-profit organizations protecting and stewarding public and private conservation lands along the west coast of Canada over the last six years. This work involved the development and implementation of local and regional conservation plans using the Open Standards for the Practices of Conservation and Miradi software following the adaptive management approach.
Jocelyn has experience coordinating and overseeing monitoring, research and restoration projects to maintain and enhance conservation lands. Her experience in the non-profit sector offered the opportunity to build relationships with partners in government, Indigenous communities, landowners, donors and the public. Jocelyn sought to enhance conservation awareness on the west coast through outreach events, workshops and the development of communication materials.
As a scientific writer, Jocelyn has collected, synthesized and collated technical and scientific information, evaluated data and provided recommendations in the study of microplastic ingestion in seabirds and waterfowl habitat conservation in Canada.
When she is not out working in conservation, Jocelyn can be found with her family adventuring in wild spaces on land and sea hiking long trails, scrambling up mountains, camping, kayaking or SCUBA diving in British Columbia and around the world (she's been to 31 countries so far!). One of her favourite outdoor past times is identifying, taking pictures of and eating edible flora and fauna.
