Congratulations Molly on becoming a Board Certified Entomologist!
Molly Moran Achieves Board Certified Entomologist Status
Molly Moran was recently certified as a Board Certified Entomologist by the Entomological Society of America Certification Corporation. To achieve Board Certified Entomologist (BCE) status, the minimum requirements one must have are a degree in entomology (or a related field), 3 years of experience in the entomology field, two letters of reference, the willingness to abide by ethical standards set in the BCE Code of Ethics, and one must pass two rigorous exams.
A 2008 graduate of the University ofMassachusetts, Molly started in the industry working in the field doing termite and pest control. Her great background at UMASS and in the industry is a solid foundation to start her career as a Board Certified Entomologist. Since October 2010, she has worked at GreenHow, Inc., a family owned pest and termite control business in Newton Massachusetts. As in any small business, she serves many capacities including troubleshooting issues at customer sites. She routinely meets with clients, performs site inspections and documents feedback of actions to be taken by the client and by the company. She uses a hand lens, a desk microscope and a usb microscope to identify collected specimens in the office and in the field. All the company service technicians depend on Molly’s insect identification and problem solving skills to make their customers happy. Molly is a second generation BCE, joining her father, Kevin Moran of Residex, as a BCE. Kevin has been a BCE for more than 30 years. Molly worked very hard to prepare for the test, which she passed on the first try. She developed training posters and study guides over the past year as she studied for the exam.
