Aly Bean joined ICL as its climate campaign coordinator. In this role, she develops, implements and leads ICL’s efforts on combating climate change. She holds a Ph.D. in geography and her research focused on strategies for managing water rights for agriculture in the face of climate change in the western U.S. She most recently worked for the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Agricultural Research Service and collaborated with the University of Idaho. Her professional experience also includes research for NASA on climate change impacts and adaptation strategies, as well as managing and coordinating volunteers and members for the Palouse-Clearwater Environmental Institute. She also served as environmental board chair for the State of Idaho League of Women Voters and volunteered with AmeriCorps.
Becca Rodack is ICL’s north Idaho community engagement assistant. Prior to joining ICL, she worked in communications and outreach with the Women’s and Children’s Alliance, and managed volunteers at the Corpus Christi House, both in Boise. She was selected as one of three principals in a PBS documentary, “One Step Closer,” which she helped produce for Roadtrip Nation. She holds a bachelor’s in communication from the University of Pittsburgh.
