Meet Jessie Israel, Puget Sound Conservation Director

Jessie Israel

In addition to leading our work to clean up and restore Puget Sound, I am the chief architect for advancing our work in urban areas. A fourth-generation Seattleite, I am excited to help make our cities more resilient and livable and develop natural solutions to stormwater and pollution.

As a public servant, consultant and nonprofit leader, I have a 21-year track record of bringing together groups to invest in local community development, environmental and equity issues. I have trained around the world on building public-private partnerships and developing sustainable communities.
