With many years of experience in habitat restoration and pollinator conservation, Kiley works with Monarch Joint Venture’s agricultural partners to share resources with farmers and landowners looking to improve habitat and conservation measures within their operations.
A lover of the Midwest, Kiley graduated from the University of Minnesota – Twin Cities with a BS Environmental Sciences, Policy, and Management and a BA Global Studies. After some years of traveling, farm apprenticeships, and time in local food industries, she returned to her love of Entomology research and completed her MS Agroecology with a focus in Entomology from University of Wisconsin – Madison. Most recently, Kiley was a program coordinator for the Minnesota Agriculture for Pollinators Project at the University of Minnesota Bee Lab.
When not poking through prairies or working on new food projects, Kiley spends time with friends and family in the outdoors.
