Chiara Gorodesky

Chiara joined the TC Team in January 2019. She has been a passionate tortoise lover since she was given her first Greek tortoise by her parents at the age of 3 in her native Munich, Germany. Having acquired a solid tortoise husbandry knowledge over the years, she is the owner of a horsfield, two graeca and one iberia who currently live in Norfolk, England.

Chiara is an English attorney who moved to NYC from London several years ago and helps out with legal as well as development and outreach projects. Other than her love for tortoises and turtles, she is devoted to the world of ballet.
