Meet the Staff



Mary Rottschafer, Executive Director -  Making the most out of every opportunity and being open to learning (there is always something new to learn!) has introduced me to amazing farmers, agriculture professionals, awesome co-workers, and farm animals who have lived at the Critter Barn for the past 32 years.

I like snorkeling, horseback riding, walks in the woods, and working in the garden. Planning for the future is exciting, and I'm looking forward to establishing the Critter Farm on 80th Avenue.

Kris Wassink, Administrative Assistant 

 
 Faith Timmer, Animal Care
 

Mary Gamby, Special Education

Josh Hall, Facility - Josh joined the Critter Barn team in the fall of 2013 and graciously grew out his beard to play Joseph in the Live Nativity throughout December. About his work around the barn he says, “Not a day goes by that I don't do something I've never done before.” Josh is our facility manager.
