Originally from Vermont, Jess has always felt the most at home when spending time outdoors. Before moving to the Gunnison Valley in 2015, she spent many field seasons working in outdoor education and conservation. Jess is most passionate about instilling curiosity and connections to her natural environment. As an avid recreationalist, Gunnison Valley has been the perfect place for Jess to grow her roots. Any chance she gets, she is on her skis, her bike, or outside with her pup.
