Chief Impact Officer with Washington Trails Association
Growing up in Bellingham, with the North Cascades practically in his backyard, Jaime developed a lifelong passion for hiking, backpacking and spending time surrounded by trees and mountains. That passion followed him as he traveled to the East Coast and abroad, and ultimately to NYC, where he learned to appreciate the urban green spaces of Prospect and Central Parks. Jaime eventually moved back to the Pacific Northwest, but not before buying a campervan and taking a year-long road trip with his wife, visiting 47 National Parks and Forests in the process. He comes to WTA with extensive experience in strategic planning and organizational development, and an ever-growing list of favorite hikes, hot springs, and hidden boondocking spots.
