Hailing from Brookline, Massachusetts, Becca joined WCN as the Grants Manager in September 2016. She brings with her over ten years of fundraising experience, starting in college with raising money to buy a boat for her collegiate rowing team in memory of her father and then bicycling across the country to raise money for affordable housing. Becca holds a B.S. in Animal Science from Cornell University and is excited to bring together her professional skill set with her personal interests and love of animals. She's an avid equestrian, having ridden horses since age 10, as well as a dog lover and a backyard beekeeper. In her free time, she enjoys backpacking (especially in the Sierra Nevada mountains), cycling, photography, running, open water swimming, and generally being outside as much as possible. She lives in Oakland with her partner, Zoe, and her dog, Huckleberry. Two fun facts: her first pet was a mouse, and she used to lead Lord of the Rings themed horse treks in New Zealand.
