Brianna - Junior Instructor

Hey everyone! My name is Brianna. I'm so excited to get to spend another summer here at the zoo! Throughout high school I volunteered through a program called ZooCorps and then last year I was a ZooCorps Intern. As an intern, I spent lots of time in Zoomazium and also worked closely with turtles and lots of cool bugs! I am currently a student at Western Washington University.  I love being outside, acting and learning new things!

Hello! My name is Jason and I can’t wait to spend my first summer at Woodland Park Zoo! I graduated from Western Washington University in 2012 with my BA in Theatre and I just finished my 9 month Acting Apprenticeship at Actors Theatre of Louisville in Kentucky. I’m a lover of all things comic book and superhero-related, and I’m fascinated by tigers and polar bears! I’m so excited to come back home to Seattle and meet awesome new people!

Kristina - Instructor

Hello! My name is Kristina and this is my second summer at Woodland Park Zoo. I graduated Whitworth University with a degree in theatre. I love discovering new things everyday as well as using my imagination to explore the world. I look forward to the games and fun that is to be had this summer. My favorite thing to do at the zoo is watch all the baby animals grow up.

I'm Lauren and I'm thrilled to be joining DDC again this summer. I'm an Indiana native with a degree in Theatre Education. I love playing theatre games, sharing animal facts, and being creative! Most of my experience is with public schools, but I've been lucky enough to work for some exciting camps the past three years. And currently my favorite animal is the blue whale!

Britt - DDC Lead Coordinator

Hi! My name is Britt and I'm so excited to be back for my eighth summer as a Little Cheese! I'm a native Seattle girl and spent lots of time exploring the zoo when I was camper-sized. As a grown-up, I graduated from UW and now I'm on faculty at Seattle children's Theatre! Most of the year, I tour the country performing in lots of different shows. When you see me, ask me why I think the slow loris is the coolest animal on the planet!
