Susan lounges with her kitty, having loved animals from a very early age

Susan Barzallo was initially a biology major, but her inability to harm lab animals led her to a career in education. As an elementary and preschool teacher for twenty-five years, she tried to instill in young children respect and appreciation for the individuality, intelligence, and wonder of animals.

After becoming aware of the inhumane conditions and cruelty that animals are subjected to in factory farming, Susan switched from a nearly lifelong vegetarian diet to a fully vegan lifestyle overnight. The more she learned about animal abuses in various industries and the effects of factory farming on animals and the planet, the more Susan realized she needed to do something about it. Searching for a way to use her background in education to help animals, Susan began working with The Animals Voice.

Prior to her work with animals and children, Susan was an employee of Soundings, a boating magazine, still in print today, wherein she wrote copy and compiled design elements for advertisements. These skills, coupled with her passion, are now enabling her to create the memes for our “What Happens to Them Matters to Them” and “I am a Someone, Not a Something” campaigns.

Susan is also the News and Associate Editor for The Animals Voice.
