Jacqueline finished her Masters of Science in Forest & Conservation Science from the University of British Columbia where her research focused on addressing management gaps to support better conservation decision making for beach spawning forage fish. After seminal years as a field biologist in environmental consulting working on mining, land development, municipal, and Indigenous projects Jacqueline sees a need for more cross-disciplinary and relationship focused approaches to resource use and land management.
