Title: Founder
Bio:
My name is Dawn and I am an avid Ecologist, adventurer, beekeeper and entrepreneur. I founded a small project called Bee the Change my junior year of undergrad at the Ohio State University. Our goal is to work with women in low-income communities to offer them supplemental income through the sale of beehive by-products. Growing up in a house where we depended on food-stamps, and I was the first to attend college, I understand the economic struggle for low-income females and my love for bees and the environment inspired a perfect match for addressing these challenges.

Bee the Change work with women in low-income communities to offer them supplemental income through the sale of beehive by-products. We are addressing poverty and the the disappearance of bees, ( which provide 1/3 of the worlds food supply through pollination), by teaching women beekeeping.
