Michelle Szydlowski


I have been working with animals in conservation and as an educator at zoos and public schools for 30 years. I went back and got my PhD in Anthrozoology, completed last year. My research focus is pachyderm-human relations in SE Asia (rhino and elephant), but as a former vet tech I also teach/work with exotics and companion animals. My general field of practice is Anthrozoology.

How I can mentor:

I am excited to mentor in the following HAI areas: Research, Advanced education, Careers/jobs, Private practice, and Non-profits
