Chase was raised in the foothills of the Cascades and on the beaches of Hood Canal, instilled with a passion for fish and wildlife and a sense of responsibility to conserve them. Prior to joining Conservation Northwest in 2014, Chase coordinated outreach for statewide political campaigns, worked on corporate accounts for Starbucks Coffee Company, and spent three years as a lobbyist and public affairs consultant in Seattle and Olympia, supporting Northwest tribes, agencies and foundations. He lives in Ballard where he can fish and crab on Puget Sound from his kayak before work. In his volunteer time, Chase is an active leader on salmon and steelhead conservation issues, including stints on the Board of Directors for the Wild Steelhead Coalition and the Washington Chapter of Backcountry Hunters & Anglers.
