But when she learned about the rainbow-colored ‘Orchid Bee’ early in her career, she became immersed in the beguiling world of bees. Dr. Judy Wu is a California native who currently works at University of Nebraska-Lincoln in the Entomology department. She has co-written an arms-length of scientific papers and won several awards in her field- she focuses her career on pollinator health and conservation. She is also the current president of the American Association for Professional Apiculturists, an active member of the Entomological Society of America, and a board officer of the Nebraska Beekeepers Association. When not ‘saving the bees’ she strives to incorporate art, science and nature into her everyday life and has presented at dozens of scientific conferences, guest lectures, industry conferences and public events.
