Speaker Bios:

Susan is currently a zookeeper in New Jersey. Graduating with degrees in Zoology, Anthropology, and Classical Humanities, she can safely say that her mixture of science and humanities background has helped her tackle conservation from both the animal and human sides. When she’s not working with sloths, she enjoys exploring New York City, writing scripts, and watching crime documentaries. 

Mary Kate graduated with a degree in Zoology and minor in Biological Anthropology. She spent many years at the Cincinnati Zoo, but is currently in Dallas, Texas working as a Primate Zoologist (zookeeper) specializing in primates big and small, from gorillas and mandrills to titi monkeys and lemurs and a plethora in between. She recently started a new role as Social Media Liaison for the Dallas chapter of AAZK (American Association of Zookeepers). Pre-covid she loved traveling but is now enjoying hikes in nearby state parks with her husband and pup.
