Jess Duncan (she/her)
Jess is a third generation settler of mixed European and Trinidadian descent who spent her childhood and adolescence in and around Coast Salish territory, primarily on the Southern end of so-called Vancouver Island. She grew up exploring the rainforest and the intertidal zone and feels lucky to have developed a love of nature and science at an early age. Jessica recently finished a double major in Biology and Environmental Studies from the University of Victoria where she found a deep love for talking to people about plants and a passion for making nature accessible to all. Jess now lives in the West End with her partner Chris and is rarely sitting still. She values her yoga practice, reading, riding her bike, climbing, knitting, dancing and looking for cool bugs.
