Jeremy moved to Grand County from Flagstaff, AZ, in late 2018. His first job out of college (University of Maryland, 2013) was as a seasonal backcountry steward in the Adirondack Mountains, where he grew up backpacking and first honed his passion for the backcountry and natural resource conservation. In 2014, Jeremy moved to Arizona to work on a cattle ranch outside of Flagstaff. In 2015, he was hired as program manager of Diablo Trust, a collaborative ranching conservation nonprofit, dedicated to the holistic sustainability of nearly 500,000 acres of private and public ranchlands in northern Arizona. Wanting to see more of the West and learn more about conservation in the field, Jeremy looked to land trusts in Colorado. Colorado provides both an opportunity to live in the mountains and stay out West, and the CHLT is the ideal organization for him to lead in the face of a growing West. Jeremy enjoys backpacking, running, hiking, playing music, reading, and writing.
