Corina Newsome


Corina works as an Ambassador Animal Keeper at the Nashville Zoo, where she specializes in animal training and environmental education. Corina earned her B.A. in Zoo and Wildlife Biology from Malone University (OH) in 2015. During her time as a student at Malone, she co-chaired the Sustainability Committee on Student Senate, served as the Student Director for Multicultural Student Services, and founded a student-led wildlife outreach education program, later named the Malone University Zoo Crew.

Corina grew up in downtown Philadelphia and has always had a desire to participate in, and advocate for, the protection of wildlife and wild places. Her goal is to draw city-dwellers into the great outdoors, in the same way that her educators and mentors have done for her.

Outside of her work, Corina enjoys playing piano, dancing in the Nashville Ballet’s community division, and chasing her next potential “life bird.”
