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.

Lemurs love watermelon too!

The word of the summer for the Animal Department is Watermelon!

Ursula, our oldest bear, prefers watermelon to take her medicine in, but she’s not the only animal that enjoys this special summer treat.
