Karey Windbiel-Rojas
Karey Windbiel-Rojas, urban IPM educator.

Educator to spread message about urban integrated pest management

More than half of all pesticide use in California is in urban environments, necessitating the need to educate the public about pesticide use. That’s why the UC IPM Program has hired a new urban IPM educator, Karey Windbiel-Rojas.

Windbiel-Rojas has a bachelor’s degree in biology from CalPoly in San Luis Obispo and a master’s degree in integrated pest management from UC Davis.

In this new position, she will coordinate urban outreach activities with UC Cooperative Extension master gardener programs, public agencies, nongovernment organizations, and others involved in urban pest management throughout California. A big part of the job is to organize and implement train-the-trainer programs, work with experts to develop outreach and educational materials, and find innovative ways to inform people about integrated pest management.
