Jessica Walker has taken a less traditional route into politics then some of the other candidates but what she lacks in experience she makes up for with passion and drive.
Jessica has been interested in environmental protection since she was a child. She has always had a deep love and respect for animals and as she grew she realized that politics played a key role in preserving our natural world. Jessica is a “jack of all trades” type who has had many different jobs through the years, preferring to gather eclectic experiences from many different places; and versatility along the way.
Jessica attended Mount Allison University for Psychology/Philosophy with a minor in Photography but decided it wasn’t the right time for her and moved on to gaining some different life experiences. She eventually returned to College to take Makeup Artistry and Design but when her life changed course again, she adapted and eventually returned to take Mental Health and Addictions Counselling where she gained certifications such as suicide intervention and Crisis management. Jessica spent time working at a homeless shelter and briefly did Reiki at a rehab for the work placement of the Counselling program. She is also a Usui Reiki Ryoho Master/ Teacher.
Jessica, having grown up in Upper Granville has observed the impact the clear cuts and use of chemical spraying in the area has had on the populations of birds, insects, fish and mammals who live in the area. Since she was a child she has been dismayed by the treatment of our natural resources and strives toward sustainability in all aspects possible. Jessica is passionate about finding solutions to many key issues like housing, health care, open pen fish farming/sustainable fishing, clear cuts, spraying, mental health, equal rights for all, social justice, environmental protection that ensures we are able to take meaningful action addressing climate change, and more. Jessica also hopes through cooperation with communities, eco-friendly and sustainable jobs can be created. She strives for sustainability and environmental protection to help our province heal.
Jessica spends her free time painting, spending time with her loved ones and pets and raising quail that she raises for eggs. She has a 10 year old daughter, cats, a rabbit and some small parrots and she enjoys reading a good book, listening to documentaries, wandering through the woods and kayaking when she can get to the water.
The Green Party of Nova Scotia is excited to have Jessica Walker as our candidate in the riding of Digby-Annapolis.
