After nearly four years of dedicated commitment and service to the animals and mission of the APA, the APA is saying a bittersweet goodbye to our friend and colleague, Michelle Kodner. During her tenure here, Michelle dramatically increased the presence of the APA’s education programs in local schools and strengthened ties to community organizations. Her in-depth knowledge of animal welfare issues and educational curriculum design made her a perfect fit for our team. Her kind, warm personality made her a favorite among staff members and volunteers alike. We will miss her dearly but are so happy for her as she advances her career as a curriculum writer for Scottrade.
