Zooillogix has seen growth of 35%-40% month over month since we began the site two years ago and currently boasts 200 million readers. It only makes sense that we need a little help. We’d like to introduce you to Katie Thompson, the Zooillogix Intern Extraordinaire!
Careful, she is a certified Krav Maga instructor.
Because Katie’s father was in M15, Katie’s family moved frequently as she was growing up, often to exotic locations, and she found it difficult to make and keep long term friends. Her mixed racial background (Native American, Finnish, and Swazi) also fostered in her, as she says, “a sense of belonging everywhere fully, but no where partially.” It was no wonder that at a young age Katie turned to animals as her sole source of comfort. Her first pet was a galaga named Sadie, that she bought from a street vendor in Kuala Lumpur. She rescued a club-footed tapir in Equador, befriended a flock of endangered cranes in Perth, and even swam, daily, with a pod of Minki whales off the coast of New Foundland. Her time spent among the Earth’s creatures has given her a unique insight into their world, and ultimately into our own. Currently, Katie works for Google in their cafeteria as a sushi chef.
When Katie approached us about offering her expertise and cutting wit to Zooillogix, what else could we say? Please join us in giving her a warm welcome and look for her contributions in future posts.
