Pollinator Program Administrator
As the Pollinator Program Administrator, Raven helps with program tracking and reporting, publication preparation, communications, event coordination and more. She also helps the public find Xerces Society resources they are either having a hard time tracking down, or didn't even know they wanted until they reached out.
She holds a bachelor’s of science in biology and art from St. Lawrence University where she researched wild bee diversity and abundance and advocated for scientific accessibility. For her graduate work in the School of Plant and Environmental Science at Virginia Tech, she quantified honey bee resource acquisition and population growth in grazing systems as a part of the Bee-Friendly Beef project. Outside of work, you’ll find her biking, snowboarding, roller skating, or starting a new art project.
