I'm extremely excited to be working at the Museum since October 2010. My favorite part of this job- besides working with the animals- is listening to all of the Keeper stories, I hear a new one each day. In my spare time I enjoy hiking, belly dancing, and vegan cooking.
I work Sunday through Thursday. I can be found mostly behind the scenes or training the Ring Tail Lemurs.

Enrichment at home

August 23rd, 2011

Enrichment isn’t just something I do at work. At the end of the day I may have several scents on me- snake musk, opossum funk, steer slobber and many many more. So I go home, lay out my clothes and watch my cats- it’s both enriching for me and them.

First alpha kitty Parker checks it out

Then Pilot, Dylan, and PJ can have a sniff

PJ claims it!

  1. Any day I visit the Animal department, I get an extra-thorough sniff from my dog Murray when I get home.

  8. sorry..my comment didn’t make sense. Was thinking of past blogs and photos of the bears enjoying their watermelon treats.
    (Seedless watermelons are now on sale at Kroger for $2.99 and I dropped two off at the front desk.)
