Tennessee Wildlife Federation, one of the largest and oldest nonprofits dedicated to conserving the state’s wildlife and natural resources, welcomes its newest addition, Rebeca Bell.
Bell will serve the Federation’s development department by directing all aspects of grant-based fundraising—such as researching, writing and reporting—as well as engage in special projects.
A nonprofit and communications veteran, Bell has spent a majority of her career tackling conservation issues from multiple perspectives—from State Wildlife Action Plans to water quality and rare species protection. In her previous roles, Bell successfully earned large, multi-year grants, engaged valuable stakeholders, and developed strategic proposals.
“Rebeca is an incredible addition to the Federation,” said Kendall McCarter, chief development officer of Tennessee Wildlife Federation. “She brings the right experience and enthusiasm that will help advance the conservation of Tennessee’s wildlife, water and wild places.”
Bell holds a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Denison University and a Master of Arts in Writing, Rhetoric and Discourse from DePaul University.
“I’m excited to work on issues I care about in my new home state. What better way to get to know a place than by working to conserve its wildlife and habitat,” said Bell.
