Jennifer Chavez

Title: Staff Attorney

Bar Admissions: DC, IL

I gained a love for the natural world as a child steeped in the majestic beauty of the San Luis Valley in Colorado. I fight for the environment so that other children and families will continue to enjoy the beauty and life-giving sustenance of their favorite mountains and streams.
