Elaina Michael
Instructor Bio
Elaina has always been drawn to understanding and deepening our connection to the land and each other, which led her to pursue a learn-by-doing B.S. in Animal Science and M.S. in Ruminant Nutrition. Both degrees ultimately revealed to her the depth of interdependence between land and animals – including humans. Following her studies, she sought to continue her boots-on-the-ground education by working with reindeer in remote parts of Alaska, herding and milking Sarda sheep in Italy, and frequenting horse-back excursions with local ranchers outside of Yosemite National Park to check on cattle in some of the most rugged terrain. She currenlty owns and operates Refontê Ventures LLC based in Colorado where she works to accelerate the rate of adoption of regenerative agriculture through the writing of revolutionary ideas and rethinking the priorities of some of the largest industries.
