Hey everyone! I am excited to be back for my second season of overnights at WPZ. I love being out on grounds when it’s nice and dark, listening for special animal noises you can never hear during the day, and seeing things regular guests never get to experience. My favorite part about overnights (besides the dark, and of course the stars on a clear night!) would have to be how every overnight adventure is different and you never know what amazing new sights you can see ! I cannot wait to meet all of you new adventurers!

I have been an educator for over a decade at Woodland Park Zoo. I was raised in the Pacific Northwest, where my passion for the natural world began during childhood when I rock-hounded, hiked and explored the wilderness around Washington State. I love sharing my enthusiasm for and knowledge of the natural world to inspire others to learn, care and act.





I love being at the zoo at night. It’s a magical place and I would love the chance to share the nighttime zoo with you. I started at the zoo as a docent many years ago where I conquered my fear of snakes and spiders and learned so much about the natural world. I am a 4th generation Seattleite and I love learning new things I have a fat old cat who is in charge of my life and in my spare time I like to listen to books on tape while I knit.

Hi everyone! This is my first season at Woodland Park Zoo and I couldn't be more excited! Right now I'm working on getting my master's in zoology through Miami University's Global Field Program here at Woodland Park Zoo - it's a blast! My absolute favorite animal in the whole world is the koala- did you know they have fingerprints just like ours? I can't wait to go on some Zoo Adventures with all of you!

HI! I am looking forward to enjoying a Zoo Adventure with you! I have taught kids about nature and animals for over 15 years, and I have worked with wildlife for the last 20 plus years, on four continents, and no, I am not native to Seattle. You will have to guess my home country by my accent. I really enjoy teaching about the animals that are native to the places where I grew up. In my free time I like to go backpacking, geocaching, and I am an avid birdwatcher. Looking forward to meeting you soon!

Hey everyone! I am Kate. I am currently pursuing my Masters of Zoology here at Woodland Park Zoo through the Advanced Inquiry Program and also spend my weekends volunteering in the zoo’s penguin unit. I have spent the last few years working and volunteering my time at multiple zoos in areas such as zoo camp, animal management, and education. I most enjoy teaching and inspiring people about animals and our natural world and couldn’t think of a better place for this than the zoo!

Shortly after moving to Seattle in 1999, I visited Woodland Park Zoo for the first time and a few months later, I was thrilled to join the staff as part of the Zoo Adventures team! It seemed to be the perfect way to put my zoology degree and experiences from camp and animal encounters as a child to good use. After all of these years, I still feel special walking around the Zoo at night and in the early morning and I love sharing that experience with others!

Hello fellow zoo lovers! Woodland Park Zoo is one of my favorite places to be, that's probably why I've been working here for over 15 years. I have a degree in zoology and psychology from the University of Washington to help me "talk" to the animals and being nocturnal by nature definitely helps with those long overnights.

Sarah - Coordinator

Hi! I am Sarah. I graduated from Western Washington University, where I studied anthropology and elementary education. I have always loved the zoo.  I started volunteering as a teenager, then worked as a camp instructor for four years and now I work at the zoo year round as a coordinator!  I love playing board games, hiking, tide-pooling, and anything purple. My favorite animals are always changing as I learn more cool facts about them. I look forward to sharing them with you as we explore the zoo!
