Scott Jones is the Chapter Manager of The Phoenix in Boise, Idaho. Originally from the Willamette Valley in Oregon, Scott moved to the Treasure Valley in the Fall of 2006. His background is diverse, having worked as a medic/firefighter, and entrepreneur, and a leader at companies like Nordstrom and Walgreens. Though Scott has always been involved in his community as a volunteer for various nonprofits like the American Red Cross, he changed his career in the last few years to focus on Health and Wellness initiatives in the nonprofit sector that included work as a Director at the YMCA, and Executive Director at NAMI Boise. Scott has worked at The Phoenix for the last three years. As a Personal Trainer, Group Fitness Instructor, and Nutritionist, he found a great fit with The Phoenix, A Free Sober Active Community, where he can leverage his experience as a peer in recovery, along with his work in health & wellness, to make an impact in our community. Two of Scott’s passions are outdoor adventures like hiking and trail running, and working in the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion space. He is a certified Wilderness Frist Responder and has worked on DEI in various ways for over two decades.
