California Senior State Director
Prior to joining The HSUS as the California senior state director, Jennifer Fearing worked for nearly a decade in economic consulting before starting a Sacramento community spay/neuter organization and running United Animal Nations.
During her time at The HSUS, she has co-authored a book on creating dog-friendly workplaces, coordinated research on spay/neuter in the Gulf Coast, led California's successful Prop 2 campaign, and helped guide the enactment of numerous California animal protection laws, including the 2009 ban on cow tail-docking and the 2011 ban on the shark fin trade.
Fearing is currently spending a lot of her time promoting wildlife and habitat protection in California. She is member of the board of directors of the CalTIP Foundation (an anti-poaching/polluting organization).
Fearing received her B.A. from the University of California at Davis, and an M.P.P. from Harvard.
