After seeing the transformative experience his daughter had in Ecuador in the summer of 2013, Jeff joined the board to help bring similar experiences to other youth. His daughter continued working with the chapter as a vet trainer and senior vet trainer, and Jeff served originally as a member at large and then as fundraising chair. As a Release Engineer for Oracle, Jeff’s professional time is spent building test environments for QA and systems analysis for Oracle’s utility group. An avid endurance athlete and adventurer, Jeff has competed in many triathlons (including the ½ Ironman distance three times), half- and full marathons, dogsledding, whitewater rafting in the mountain west, biking through Yellowstone, backpacking the Badlands and leading a group of 13-yr-olds on a backpacking trip through bear country in northern New Mexico. In addition to his role as President, he also serves as the Chapter’s Equipment Manager. You can email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
