Mandy Newkirk joined the Koret Shelter Medicine Program as Marketing and Communications Specialist in August of 2015. Having previously worked at the San Francisco SPCA, Mandy draws upon her experience in volunteer and shelter management as well as marketing and communications to share the KSMP story.
Since joining the KSMP, Mandy has created, spearheaded, and/or midwifed many of our most engaging projects, most recently including the DIY Housing Accessories for Animal Shelters booklet, the 2020 Portal Pinup calendar, and an advent calendar on which a new tip or resource was revealed every day in December 2019.
Mandy received her BS in Managerial Economics from UC Davis. Like many friends working in animal welfare, she has assembled her own wolf pack, which consists of Eva, a rare tan Chihuahua, and Morrie, a terrier/Ewok. Two cats oversee the whole operation, of course, though two chickens try to rule the roost.
