Jaise loves to spend time working outside on the beautiful Olympic Peninsula. Having grown up and spent most of her life in Southern California, she is looking forward to exploring Washington. Over the past couple of years, she’s enjoyed doing restoration work in the Los Angeles area with a previous Americorps internship at TreePeople and trail maintenance with the Southwest Conservation Corps around the Durango and Telluride areas in Colorado. Most recently, she finished a thru-hike of the Pacific Crest Trail, with the Northern Cascades and High Sierra as the highlights of her journey. In her free time, she enjoys exploring new trails, running, reading, and saying hi to all the dogs.
