Jessa McCauley

Jessa McCauley earned a Bachelor’s of Science in Animal Ecology from Iowa State University before working as a zookeeper for 10 years at zoos on the West Coast and in the Midwest. Her favorite group of animals to work with were primates like chimpanzees and lemurs, but she has cared for everything from big cats and giraffes to kangaroos and venomous snakes. Her specialized animal care background drew her to fostering for ITV, where she especially enjoys working with neonates. Jessa lives in Newburgh with her husband, three children, and many pets.
