Speaker Biographies:

The Bug Chicks 

Kristie Reddick and Jessica Honaker are The Bug Chicks, entomologists and professional educators who inspire people of all ages to find their inner bugdork! Connecting the science of entomology with social-emotional learning, they use bugs to help people open their minds, break down prejudices and feel empowered in their lives.  

Brandon Reynolds 

Upon graduating from the University of Cincinnati in 2015, Brandon entered the advertising industry for a few years before starting a new role as an apprentice beekeeper. Here he learned the value of native plants and the vital role pollinators play in promoting regional biodiversity. To put his Marketing degree to work, he founded B the Keeper in 2019 to "sell" sustainability by working with local businesses and landowners to install pollinator habitats in urban areas.
