BW Consultants: Amy Schilz

← Go Back

When standing in front of a giraffe training partner, Amy is acutely aware of how lucky she is to have been surrounded by such amazing people and animals throughout her life. Her path into this career field was forged at a young age; she started interning at The Milwaukee County Zoo in high school. From there, she attended the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point and earned a B.S. in both Wildlife Management and Biology, and minored in Captive Biology.

Since that time, she's soaked up every opportunity to learn more about animals and how best to try to save them. She's dabbled in field research, veterinary nursing, and zookeeping. While exploring all of the options of where she could best focus her time and energy to make a difference, she discovered the science of behavior change! It has changed how she's worked with animals throughout the years, and she's currently really focused on how to best train with a dialogue style of learning. She enjoys coaching training sessions, running giraffe workshops, and continuing to learn from others through consulting opportunities provided by Behavior Works.
