Emily- Instructor

Hey, my name is Emily! This will be my 8th summer at Woodland Park Zoo, and I am excited to spend it with Zoo U! I am a recent Whitworth graduate, with a degree in Biology. I love plants, ecology, and of course, animals, (my very favorite is the mountain goat)! When I'm not at the zoo, I love to bike, bake, and read. See you this summer!


Leonor- Instructor

Hello! My name is Leonor, and I am so excited to share my love of learning and the natural world with campers at Woodland Park Zoo! I just finished my MA in Museology at UW, (that's just a fancy term for studying museums), where I focused on learning in informal settings like museums, aquariums, and zoos. When not kicking it at the Zoo, you can find me hiking, swing dancing, and serenading my cat with my mediocre ukulele skills.


       Maggie - Assistant

Hi, my name is Maggie and I am super excited to spend this summer at Woodland Park Zoo with all the Zoo U campers! I have been a middle school teacher in Phoenix, Arizona for the past 7 years, and have worked at a variety of summer camps including the Phoenix Zoo. I love ALL animals, but two of my favorites are my cats Salt and Pepper. When I'm not at the zoo I am usually reading, snuggling with my cats, or playing ultimate Frisbee.

Ryan - Assistant

My name is Ryan, and I am super excited to be working with the Zoo U Camp this summer! I just graduated from Purdue University where I studied ecology, evolution, and wildlife. I’ve researched frog behavior, bird vision, and African fisheries, but one of my favorite experiences was working as a camp counselor with Columbian Park Zoo in Indiana. I can’t wait to be back in zoo education! Outside of the zoo, I enjoy tennis, hiking, and playing piano.
