Trent Connor - Operations Support Specialist

Growing up in central Illinois where he rode bikes and participated in sports and summer activities, Trent has enjoyed spending time outdoors his entire life. He has a degree in Recreation, Park and Tourism Administration from Western Illinois University and completed his college internship outside of Seattle, Washington where he first met Doug Buell. Prior to getting married to his wife in 2011 and relocating to the Pacific Northwest, he spent 12 years working on operations at a luxury hotel in Scottsdale, Arizona. In his free time, he trained and ran in half marathons and hiked around the Phoenix area, with some of his favorite hikes being in Sedona, Arizona.

Upon relocating to the Pacific Northwest, Trent continued his love of hiking - one of his favorites being Tunnel Falls on Eagle Creek Trail in the Columbia River Gorge. He also has enjoyed snowshoeing and downhill skiing. As a father of a toddler, he currently spends much of his outdoor time at playgrounds, greenspaces, and toddler-friendly hiking trails keeping his adventurous son as "owie" free as possible.
