Emily O'Neil is the primary staff scientist at The Best Bees Company. Emily works closely with CEO Noah Wilson-Rich to conduct research utilizing the data compiled from Best Bees beehives, searching for answers to big-pictures questions and trends in pollinator health. Emily graduated from Ithaca College in 2021 with a BS in Environmental Science and a minor in Apiology. She was the Head Lab Manager of the Environmental Science and Studies Department, and was the Head Beekeeper of the Ithaca College Apiary.
