Amanda - Assistant

Hi, I’m Amanda! I’m currently studying at Western Washington University for an Environmental Science degree. I love Woodland Park Zoo and have been coming here since I was a camper myself. I’ve also spent several summers volunteering with ZooCorps during high school and am very excited to be returning to work with camps this year. I love music and spending time outdoors; hopefully we can have lots of both at camp this summer.
