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.

A Keeper’s Point of View, Part 1

June 18th, 2013

Each morning as an Explore the Wild Keeper, after I’ve read over yesterday’s logs, gotten my food and enrichment together for the day and grabbed any additional items I might need (i.e. snacks) I head out to begin my day. The first thing I do is check the bear fence. This also involves checking the bears. I took several photos in a row of what that looks like from my point of view.

 

This is Gus, kind of adorable!
