Katie Ortiz, Caregiver

Katie grew up in New Mexico. She majored in evolutionary anthropology and loves any and all studies related to evolution. Her evolution studies required learning about apes and as a life-long animal lover she was soon captivated by apes. Katie did an internship at the Center for Great Apes in Florida and within days of the internship she knew she had found her passion.
