Neftali “Martine” Guiterrez

Animal/Grounds Keeper

Martine is one of our Senior Keepers and has been with LTB since 2007. Martine plays an integral role ensuring all of the animals are well care for and their habitats are safe, secure and well-maintained. Along with providing daily care to LTB’s animal crew, Martine also plays an active role in helping to construct new habitats at LTB.

Amy Tillotson

Administrative Assistant

Amy graduated from Whitworth College in Washington, headed to San Diego for the Summer and never left. Amy has been an animal lover since early childhood. Almost every picture of her growing up has an animal. Her family always wondered what animal she was going to bring home next, they ranged from dogs, cats, rabbits, hamsters, gerbils, birds, fish…. She’s a strong believer in rescuing the animals we already have on this earth and providing them with love, respect and kindness and this is what LTB is all about. In her free time Amy enjoys spending time with her husband, dogs, friends, playing beach volleyball and working in her yard.

Brian Williams

Animal/Grounds Keeper

Brian is a San Diego native. He graduated from CSU – Sacramento with a B.S. in Biology and a concentration in Ecology, Evolution and Conservation. Brian has a varying background working with animals, from studying ring tail cats in the wild during college to interning at the Arkansas big cat sanctuary, Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge. Brian brings his passion for animals to LTB as one of our knowledgeable keepers. His favorite animal is Maverick the tiger and his favorite thing about LTB is seeing firsthand the lengths our sanctuary will go to protect all animals in captivity, not just those who we care for directly.
