Jed has always been driven by two forces… doing good and having fun. These passions have been the guiding stars that brought Jed and his wife, Kelly, all over the world chasing adventure and serving communities along the way. Having worked in a broad range of recreational and educational settings, Jed brought a diverse set of experiences and skills to the Driftless Region when they settled here 15 years ago. He spent the better part of a decade as an at-home-parent, volunteering in his free time in ecological, recreational, and justice minded pursuits. More recently, he has owned and operated an outdoor education and recreation project management business and is now the Executive Director of ORA Trails. This role sits soundly at the intersection of Jed’s passions and skills, allowing him the opportunity to improve and highlight this beautiful place he calls home.
