Annie was born in Queens, NY but grew up in PA with her twin sister, younger brother and mother. Traveling back and forth, she was able to volunteer, intern and work full time at the Bronx Zoo, Queens Zoo, Philly Zoo, Lehigh Valley Zoo and Elmwood Park Zoo. Finishing her degree in Conservation and Wildlife Management from Delaware Valley University, she landed her dream job as a Zoo Keeper not long after. Though that didn’t stop her from wanting to learn and experience the animal care field even more. Annie is currently working on her second degree in Veterinary Technology at Penn Foster and hopes to one day work with exotics again in the medical field.
When not working, she enjoys activities such as hiking, skate and long-boarding and watching Japanese animations. She shares her home with her Border Collie mix dog Bruce, two cats Shadow and Kitten and two ferrets Thanos and Haku.
