Meet Your 2022 AAZKSF Officers

Julianna Brown

President


Julianna here, the 2022 AAZKSF President. I’m one of the hoofstock keepers at the San Francisco Zoo and Gardens. I have been involved with AAZK as far back as 2013. Throughout my time with AAZK, I have had the pleasure of serving on the committee for two different chapters, working my way up to the position I hold today. As a long time member of AAZK, I have had a unique opportunity to network with many different zoo professionals and beyond, gathering at the national conferences, and making lifelong friends. Most of all, it has allowed me to take part in raising awareness and providing support for wildlife conservation. Being a part of AAZK has been a huge part of my career and I look forward to being able to bring my knowledge and background to our chapter.

Kayley Bateman

Vice President

Kayley is honored to join AAZKSF as the chapter's Vice President. She has over 14 years of professional animal care experience at leading organizations in California and Illinois. Kayley is currently a primary zoo keeper at the San Francisco Zoo where she oversees the daily husbandry and care of several carnivore species. She also serves as Events Coordinator for AAZK's "Trees For You and Me," a conservation grant program dedicated to mitigating climate change by planting trees in areas affected by deforestation.

Randy Mazzuca
