Who We Are

Beekeepers helping beekeepers

PerfectBee Ambassadors are wonderful folks who have a true and long-lasting passion for beekeeping. With a diverse set of beekeeping experiences, our Ambassadors love helping other beekeepers.

From various locations across the US, our Ambassadors participate, on a voluntary basis, in the PerfectBee Beekeeping Forum, in our regular Colony webinars, our Colony Cluster online meetings, as authors of our ever-expanding library of articles and Academy lessons…and so much more.

Our Ambassadors are giving back to this beautiful hobby of beekeeping and we’re honored and appreciative of their involvement with PerfectBee.
