Amy Suzanne Hunt


Tell us about what you're doing with your life.
I love spending time with my family... my husband, Erik, two daughters, Lucy, 4, and Mia,1, and our animals.  We have many pets, including 6 horses and a donkey.

I have worked as a Nutritionist/Lab technician at the Fort Worth Zoo for 15 years.  The last five years I have worked part time in order to spend more time with my family.

What was your favorite class at Cornell, or the one you found the most useful?

Animal Nutrition 212 taught by Dr. Alan Bell.  This class is the reason I became interested in zoo nutrition as a field and why I have the career I do today.

What advice would you give to a student starting at Cornell this year?

Get to know your teachers and the graduate students in your department - there are amazing people learning and working at Cornell!

What does being a Cornell alumnus mean to you?

An incredible network of friends and colleagues.  I was Social Director and President of  the Cornell Alumni Association of North Texas for several years and was fortunate to meet and socialize with many, many wonderful people.
