Susannah Smith received her B.A. in Anthropology and History from Tulane University, and completed a year of graduate work in Applied Anthropology at American University. She worked in the Zoo Education department at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay for eight years as a conservation educator and supervisor. She also served as the zoo’s media spokesperson and presentation trainer. Although Susannah has worked with many species of animals (and talk show hosts), her most challenging experience was training elephant handlers to speak over a microphone. She is currently working on an M.A. in Environmental Communication at the University of South Florida.
