Our commitment to community starts with our Founder.

Growing up in a small town outside of Pittsburgh, nothing was more important to Chad than family and community. But career goals landed him in Philadelphia, New York City and Los Angeles where large metropolitan settings seemed to dismiss the need for that warm, fuzzy community feel.

He was determined to support the health and wellness of neighborhood communities of all sizes (and bring back that loving feeling). Hence, Remedy Hike's commitment to local, sustainable, organically grown business partnerships.

Adventure Seeking Do-Gooder

Community builds through the support of our team of professionals that care deeply about sustainability in health.

After nearly a decade working for Bayer as an agricultural marketing strategist, Jon-Erik founded DBG Marketing to help local farmers navigate the world of sustainable farming before joining our team at Remedy Hike.


Following Hurricane Maria, Jon-Erik went back to Puerto Rico not only to help his own family but also his community. He poured his energy into helping the relief efforts, rebuilding local farms and creating lodging for eco-tourism.
