Oryx Battiste

HR Coordinator

Originally from the North coast of California, Oryx has been in Bellingham since 2010, drawn to the area by family connections. In previous roles Oryx has had the opportunity to balance the practical and the philosophical, and the fascinating and often unexpected overlap between them. This love of duality and intersection is what drew Oryx to Human Resources. 

Coming from a family of activists, artists, authors, and regenerative farmers, the Non-GMO Project has been a household name for Oryx since its beginning during her teen years. The opportunity to become part of the Project was one that she couldn’t pass up! Outside of work, Oryx is an oil painter, knitter, and general homebody who loves nothing more than to be with her husband and baby, and their ridiculous dog.
