When I was very young, I discovered my passion for all fuzzy creatures. From the tiniest caterpillar to the largest dog, I found myself fascinated by them all. I was fortunate to have my passion flamed by the various animals in our home and it only encouraged my desire to work with animals more. As I grew, I decided to go a different path and found that I wanted the zookeeper life. For two years, I dedicated my life to learning all I could from my teachers, human and four-legged, at America’s Teaching Zoo in Moorpark, California. I found a passion for carnivores, primates, and bird of prey. In May 2019, I graduated from the Exotic Animal Training and Management Program at Moorpark College. I then found myself uprooting my life from California to Montana and becoming a part of an amazing group of people who are constantly teaching me new things and driving me to be better every single day.
