Vice President, Corporate & Public Affairs
A leading advisor to business, governments and NGOs on environmental, sustainability and climate change communications, and Indigenous reconciliation.
Jessie is a true force for good. Few communications professionals in North America can match her accomplishments and energy in the areas she is most passionate about — clean economy and Indigenous advocacy.
Jessie continuously changes the expectations of what a strategic communications firm like Argyle can accomplish.
As former Head of Strategic Communications for WWF-Canada, Jessie was the strategist behind communications and organizational responses to diverse, complex, and controversial issues. She was also the founding Communications Director for Canada’s Ecofiscal Commission and was Argyle’s lead communication strategist behind the Institute of Sustainable Finance.
Jessie led Argyle’s award-winning Sixties Scoop campaign to achieve justice for survivors. She is also the communications architect and leader of the Federal Indian Day School claims communication program, supporting former students in their ongoing journeys toward justice and healing.
Today, she draws on her knowledge and experience to provide insights for clients that bring real change to organizations, industries, policies — and peoples’ lives.
