Sarah became interested in animal behavior while studying Psychology at New Mexico State University. Sarah enrolled in extra biology courses, and decided that she wanted to work with animals and to contribute towards conservation and realized that the best way for her to do that was to work in zoos and aquariums.
Sarah has completed two internships–one at the Duke Lemur Center in Durham, North Carolina, and a second at the Marine Mammal Care Center in San Pedro, California. She is also a regular volunteer at the LA Zoo and at the Madrona Marsh Nature Center in Torrance. Working at these facilities was a rewarding experience and gave her an appreciation for those working to preserve animals and the environment in grassroots organizations.
By joining the WLC team, Sarah can contribute to conservation through education and care for a variety of species of animals.
