Kaitlyn Champion – Pet and Animal Care Tutor

After getting her degree in Zoology and Animal Science Kaitlyn spent time in South Africa studying Cheetahs, as well as time in Zanzibar studying the impact that tourism has on Bottlenose and Humpback dolphins. Now she’s taking what she learnt there and is passionate about passing it on to all her enthusiastic Animal and Pet Care students at The Career Academy. Fortunately, online learning means that none of our students have to get too up close and personal with a hungry cheetah.
In her free time, Kaitlyn spends her time trying to wrangle her Great Dane puppy, and is also in the Australian Army Reserves – but she doesn’t know which is a tougher job.
