BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – Brevard Zoo has a new team member in Ysella Yoder, who has been appointed as the manager of development operations. Yoder comes to the Zoo with a wealth of experience in project management and a passion for conservation.
She has developed her skills both in the U.S. and internationally, as Yoder was born in Derby, England.
Yoder worked as a program manager at Yale Center for Environmental Law & Policy and most recently served as the client project coordinator at Edgecumbe Consulting in England before relocating to Melbourne in November 2017.
Previously, she authored articles for environmental publications at Save the Sound and served as a voluntary English teacher in Peru.
“I have been interested in conservation since I was a child,” said Yoder, “and I think that the Zoo is doing incredibly important work. I am so excited to be a part of this organization and help carry out its mission of wildlife conservation through education and participation.”
She will be actively engaged in all facets of development operations and, in doing so, help the Zoo connect to its community and vice versa.
“I am thrilled to have Ysella join our team as the Zoo works to advance enhance the quality of life for all who call the Space Coast home, both now and for generations to come,” said Karen Davis, Brevard Zoo director of development.
