An African porcupine and an aardvark are just a couple of her "coworkers." Adriana LaCorte Maher ’89 is a bilingual educator at the San Diego Wild Animal Park where she handles about 25 animals, including parrots, owls, alligators, and snakes. In addition to teaching programs at the Park, she also presents animals at schools, retirement homes, and even on the local news.
She is married to fellow Webb alumnus Brian T. Maher '88, with whom she has two young children. After graduating from UC San Diego in 1994, Maher served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Honduras for 2 1/2 years, teaching environmental and AIDS education in a small village near the Guatemalan border.
In 2010 she generously hosted a group of Webb students at the San Diego Wild Animal Park.
Amara Berry ’12 truly embodies what it means to think boldly, mindfully and creatively. In October 2017, she was invited to give a Tedx Talk in Providence, Rhode Island, where she spoke on the legacy of her grandparents, how their work inspired her and the incredible work she is doing with our youth through The Sparkle Program.
We are pleased and excited to announce the appointment of Jennifer Liu as Webb’s Director of Parent Relations and Special Events effective November 1.

An opportunity to pick the brain of award-winning author John Scalzi '87, is not one you want to miss. Discussing topics ranging from what exactly defines a burrito to what projects he currently has in production, there's never a dull moment with Scalzi.
For Webb sports fans who can’t attend a game, or if you’d like to follow along with the live stats and scores from our athletic contests, most of our home games will be covered live with video and play-by-play at The NFHS Network.
