President: Rowan

Rowan is a 4th year Animal Biology (Honours) student, and has been involved with Zoomaniacs since her first year at the U of A. Her interests in natural history motivated her join the club, and the fantastic group of people she met after joining inspired her to become more involved. When not wading through assignments, Rowan can be found birding, collecting insects, or binge-watching Lord of the Rings. Feel free to get in touch with her if you have questions about the club, or if you simply want to chat about animals!

VP External: Dixie

Dixie is a 4th year Ecology student here at the UofA. Both her career path, and involvement in this club have stemmed from a life-long love of all animals. As VP External, she is responsible for providing volunteer and job opportunities to members, as well as liaising between the club and various groups involved in our events. She joined in winter of her first year, and has been so grateful for the good times, and volunteer/job opportunities it’s provided her. Now, as VP External, she hopes to provide that to current and future members. A trip to the zoo, birding, museum tours, and Career Networking Night are just a few of the events she is looking forward to this year!

VP Events: Jordyn

Jordyn is a 4th year Animal Biology student and currently the VP Events. She has a huge passion for animals and one day hopes to work in Africa rehabilitating injured and orphaned animals. Just this past summer, she spent 3 months in Africa finishing some classes and being involved in research projects including giraffe behaviour, marine megafauna observations, small mammal trapping and fish identification. In her free time Jordyn volunteers for the Edmonton Valley Zoo and walks dogs. She decided to join the club to increase her passion for animals and gain more opportunities to be involved with animal based activities. She encourages any animal lover, regardless of their background, to join the club too!

VP Communications: Justine

Justine is a 4th year Neuroscience student and has been elected as your VP Communications. This means she is responsible for sending out emails, newsletters, and advertisements, as well as managing the club’s Facebook page. She first joined the club because she was interested in doing behind-the-scenes work in the museum volunteering program. Now, she’s excited to be the one organizing the activity. Although being a neuroscience student, she has a soft spot for animals of all kinds (but her favourite is the red fox). Last year she went to Newfoundland to be a part of the puffin and petrel patrol to release stranded chicks back into the wild.

Webmaster: Jaise

Jaise is a 2nd year Companion and Performance Animal Health student and is currently the Webmaster for the ZooManiacs website. He loves animals and regularly volunteers as an assistant at his local vet clinic. In his spare time he likes composing music, painting, and spending time with his cat fudge. He joined the club after visiting a bake sale and was excited to discover a club with like-minded individuals. He recommends that any animal lover come and join us for fun and friends!
