Rebecca Battenfelder

Becca Battenfelder graduated from the School of Natural Resources with a focus in Recreation Management and Community Development at the University of Vermont.  Her education was supplemented with project-based studies both domestically and internationally.  In Vermont, Costa Rica, Honduras, Nicaragua and Belize, Ms. Battenfelder worked in small, rural communities with a concentration on sustainable development and tourism.  Her projects focused on community assessment, agriculture, tourism, education, impact assessment, and business strategy for community-based eco-tourism operations. Ms. Battenfelder worked as the editor and manager for Boulderspace, a design and development blog as well as the Enrollment Coordinator and Office Manager for Global Works Travel.  Becca currently spends her time exploring the world with her two young children and taking on the daily adventures of motherhood. Becca’s passion in working alongside youth to develop leadership skills through field-based experience is put to great use as she works closely with the Youth Global Leadership program.

At Philanthropiece, we are fortunate to have a team of inspired and inspiring individuals who are willing to go to the end of the earth and back – or at least to the end of a long dirt road in the back of a bumpy bus – to share in the process of creating a better life in our partner communities.
