I am fascinated by honey bees and the people who care for them. Even though I am a late comer to beekeeping, my background laid a strong foundation. I studied Biology as an undergrad and Wildlife Management in graduate school. I spent the last 15 years studying and teaching about human’s relationship with Nature in the form of environmental studies courses, principally regarding food systems. Agricultural studies naturally led to discovering my passion for honey bees 10 years ago. I have since focused all my energy on catching up with the industry! My research interests focused on honey bees and more specifically on developing better tools to study them. I worked on a few projects like the Hive Scale Monitoring Portal and the more recent PollenCheck mobile application in collaboration with BIP. I am really excited for the opportunity to work closely with the BIP team, facilitating collaboration between commercial beekeepers, our highly specialized Tech Team Agents in the field and the various research institutions.

The Bee Informed Partnership is a collaboration of efforts across the country from some of the leading research labs and universities in agriculture and science to better understand honey bee declines in the United States. Supported by the United States Department of Agriculture and the National Institute of Food and Agriculture, we’re working with beekeepers to better understand how we can keep healthier bees. The key to our success is the true partnership we maintain across a wide range of disciplines including traditional honey bee science, economics, statistics, and medical research that makes all these tools available to this important research. And just as important as the tools are the people. We not only have the leading researchers in the honey bee industry, we also have advisory boards from the commercial beekeeping industries, almond and other commercial growers, as well as naturalists and conservationists from across the country.
