Jace took a non-linear path through education, which ultimately led him to earn a B.S. in Outdoor Adventure Leadership from Southern Oregon University. He has previously worked with adolescents in horticulture therapy where he learned and practiced many new aspects of working within a therapeutic setting. Jace has also coached youth and high school cross country and track and plans to return to higher education to become a health teacher in the future.
Coupled with his prior experience and skill set, Jace has found great satisfaction and purpose in working with his love of exercise and with young people to find betterment in both body and mind. Jace eventually felt a magnetic pull bringing him back to the Rogue Valley where he previously worked with at-risk youth in high schools and now works with young adults at Dragonfly.
Jace loves to keep things simple, live a deliberate life, and reduce negative stress in all aspects of life. Running, climbing, learning, juggling, and wearing sandals are some of his favorite things.
