Hillary - Instructor

Hey! My name is Hillary and I recently graduated from the University of Washington with a BS in Biology, specifically focusing on Ecology, Evolution and Conservation Biology. I grew up working on farms, riding horses and teaching horse camps! For fun, I like to hike, swim, ride horses and play with my dog. I can’t wait to meet everyone and have an awesome summer learning about wildlife at the Woodland Park Zoo!

Gillian - Instructor

Hi, my name is Gillian! I majored in early childhood education at UW but now I’m back in school for nursing. I love animals and exploring the outdoors whenever I get a chance. I especially enjoy hiking and camping! I was a Zoo Corps volunteer in high school and have taught Kinder Camp for three summers! After missing camp for a few years I’m excited to be back as one of the full-day Kinder Camp instructors!

Mykela - Instructor

Hello everyone! My name is Amanda, and I’m studying environmental science at WWU. This will be my second year with Kinder Camp, and my fifth year at Woodland Park Zoo. I love camp because I love singing, making art, and showing you all the incredible animals from around the world. My favorites to visit at the zoo are the orangutans, Chinta and Melati, and I look forward to getting to see your favorite animals all summer!

Hailey - Assistant

Hi, I'm Hailey! I visited this zoo a lot during my own childhood, interned here during high school, & now I'm excited to be back here for the summer with all the awesome campers! Some things I enjoy are writing, art, theatre, music, animals, natural science, playing outside, and being inspired. I'm looking forward to being able to let out my inner-child and have a good time with you at camp!

Leeza - Assistant

Hello campers! My name is Leeza and I'm looking forward spending time with you at the zoo! I have an 8-yr-old daughter, a 5-yr-old son and I love hiking, camping and exploring nature with them! I have been a dance teacher, and a parent volunteer for Girl Scouts. I’m so passionate about wildlife that I've volunteered for Conservation NW, 2nd Chance Wildlife, and currently Sarvey Wildlife where I'm a weekly volunteer and raptor handler and educator.

Molly - Assistant

Hello everyone! My name is Molly and I am so excited to spend my summer at the amazing WPZ with the youngest campers! Originally from the faraway land of Mercer Island, I am studying education and leadership at Gonzaga, hoping to become a teacher. When not at the zoo, you can find me on an outdoor adventure: on a hike, at the beach, or even roller blading or jumping on a trampoline. Looking forward to a fantastic summer with all the zoo lovers!

Sabrina - Assistant

Hello all! My name is Sabrina. I am very excited for this new chance to work at the Woodland Park Zoo! My favorite summer field trip was going to this very zoo. I have always had a fascination/love for animals. I attend Whitworth University (Spokane) during the school year. I am studying psychology and hope to become an animal-assisted therapist (any animals will do). I cannot wait to meet you!
