Jeremy Kemp

Federal Policy Fellow

Though Jeremy hails from the sunny flatlands of coastal Florida, he quickly found his way to the mountains, spending eight beloved years earning his Bachelor’s and law degrees from the University of Virginia in Charlottesville. While at UVA, Jeremy was president of the UVA Outdoors Club and spent many days and nights with his peers on the A.T., particularly in Shenandoah and the George Washington National Forest. His love for the National Trails System continued to grow after hiking a 1,400-mile section of the Pacific Crest Trail before starting law school—now, though, his true allegiances are settled, and he hopes to one day thru-hike the A.T. When not hiking or advancing ATC’s policy agenda on climate change, National Forest/forestry issues, land protection, and rural economic development, he enjoys cooking, playing chess, and deepening his understanding of the planet’s vast mycelial networks.
