Growing up in a small Illinois river town, Chase’s passion for the environment was established from a young age, as he spent most of his childhood surrounded by wetlands and nature preserves. He attended the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where he earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Landscape Architecture and had the opportunity to study abroad in Sheffield, England, focusing on perennial and GIS mapping. His enthusiasm for perennials continues today, working hands-on with plants at Hoerr Schaudt. When he’s not at the office, Chase enjoys exploring Chicago’s parks and restaurants and attending the city’s many summer street festivals.
