Reva McPollom is president of Reva Digital Media LLC and founder & CEO of Lessonbee, an edtech startup disrupting K-12 health education with investors including Ruthless for Good, Connecticut Innovations, and Draper Richards Kaplan Foundation. As a child, Reva struggled to feel healthy and connected within the oppressive US education system and suffered from anxiety in and out of school. Today, Reva’s company is building a future where young people learn to manage and nurture all dimensions of well-being in grades K-12 and beyond.

Reva began her career as a news writer for Gannett Co. and The Star-Ledger. As the print news industry faltered with the rise of blogs and social media, Reva pivoted to web content management and search engine optimization before transitioning to instructional technology in 2009 and establishing elearning firm Reva Digital Media LLC in 2011. After 7 years designing innovative digital learning solutions for clients in K-12, higher ed, and workplace learning – including 5 spent transforming employee training at Razorfish (Razorfish University) and Liquidnet (Liquidnet University) – and becoming a first-time mom, Reva established Lessonbee in 2018 to reimagine the K-12 health class experience as a platform for self-directed learning and wellness mastery. 

In 2020, Reva was named one of the “100 most influential African Americans” by The Root for developing an “innovative” platform that makes “coming of age less confusing.” She is a past Headstream Innovator and Hopelab Entrepreneurial Fellow. Reva holds a Masters Degree in Instructional Technology & Media from Teachers College Columbia University, and a Bachelor’s Degree in Journalism & Media Studies from Rutgers University.
