Alix Whitener, Ph.D.

Entomologist Alix Whitener, Ph.D., U.S. field development manager at FMC Corporation, says she was drawn to science from an early age: “My parents both were in the Forest Service before I was born, so we spent a lot of time out in the forest and on public lands by the time I showed up. When I was little, I loved anything outside—and luckily a lot of insects are outside, so I was forever entertained.” Here, Whitener visits with a butterfly at a butterfly house in Phoenix, Arizona.
