Chase got his start in communications as a reporter and student leader at Washington State University. After college, he coordinated media and outreach events for a statewide political campaign, worked on corporate accounts for Starbucks Coffee Company, and spent several years as a public affairs consultant at a firm in Seattle, where he worked with Northwest tribes, non-profits and agencies, and as a lobbyist in Olympia. He joined Conservation Northwest in early 2014. Chase grew up hiking, boating and hunting in Washington’s wild places, and can often be found fishing across the Northwest with his bird dog, Gillian. In his spare time, Chase is an active volunteer on public lands, salmon, and steelhead conservation issues.
