Laura has a degree in Zoology from SUNY, State University of New York, Oswego and has many Associations of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA), and online animal welfare and husbandry courses under her belt. Most recently, Laura completed the Contemporary Animal Training and Management and Animal Training Applications in Zoo and Aquarium Settings certificate program through AZA.
