About: “I love everything about working with ZooLab - it's so hard to pick just one thing! I feel very privileged to be doing something I find so enjoyable. I love caring for all the amazing animals, but I think the thing I have found most rewarding is the joy those animals bring to other people - always makes me smile when I hear "the ZooLab lady's here!!" from the kids as I'm walking through a school. 

 

I think my favourite animal have got to be the rats - they are so intelligent and entertaining to interact with.”

 

Interesting Fact: Hannah has a insta-famous horse! Together they we do clicker training and tackless riding - he knows lots of cool tricks. She uses the platform to discuss and advocate for more ethical riding and husbandry practices.
