Bees went from an interest to an obsession. These creatures are amazing!
Rebecca started keeping bees along with her son in 2012 with a single hive. Right away she was hooked. A few years and many hives later she started Bee Present Honey, an organization that promotes pollinator education, local beekeeping in Washtenaw County, Michigan and all natural products from the hive.
She, along with her husband Owen are very active in the community doing farmer’s markets, pollination events and bee and honey festivals. Bee Present Honey educates at community events like Huron River Day, Mayors Green Fair and many events at the Farm at St. Joe’s Hospital.
Rebecca has been in education most of her career teaching in Special Education and Culinary & Hospitality. She has a BBA in Management and Comprehensive Communication from Eastern Michigan University. In her spare time away from the hives and work, she enjoys working Art Fairs with her husband Owen (Check out some amazing drawings at threeofheartscreations.com) and going on adventures with her son Xander.
