As The Raptor Center (TRC) looks to make larger impacts on animal welfare, raptor medicine, and ecosystem health on a global scale, it relies on a world-class team of experts. TRC is thrilled to announce several additions to this team.

TRC’s special initiative Partners for Wildlife (P4W) welcomed program manager Rob Kulhanek in December and administrative assistant Alyssa Weidner in March. Kulhanek will lead the team in its goal to improve the welfare of all wildlife species in rehabilitation, and Weidner will ensure both P4W and TRC stay organized and move forward with their many administrative and operational projects.

TRC’s raptor clinic welcomed the new clinic manager, Hilary DeVries, in March. DeVries comes from the New Mexico Wildlife Center, where she expertly managed the rehabilitation of 800 patients each year. P4W veterinary resident and research assistant Annette Ahlmann, DVM, will transition in June to a new associate veterinarian role to continue her impressive work with TRC.

This summer, a new veterinary resident, Kelsey Rayment DVM, joins the clinic team as well as new interns for both TRC and P4W, Kathryn Rasp, DVM, and Kaycee Daentl, DVM. TRC staff look forward to working with them and wish the very best for current interns Michael Huffaker DVM; Rachel Amato DVM; and Tracy Swanson, DVM, as they spread their wings in their next adventures.
