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.

Animal Programs

January 28th, 2013

The Animal Department does several programs a week.

We have a daily 2pm Explore the Wild Keeper Talk, which changes between Bears, Wolves, and Lemurs each week. At these programs we talk to visitors about our animals, wild animals, what kind of food they eat, or any other specifics you’d like to know.

We also have a Farm Yard Program at 4:30pm all days but Thursday. At these programs we close the Farm Yard which includes feeding the animals and shutting down the barns, here you can ask Keepers questions and even help feed hay to a couple animals.

And a special Reptile Program on Thursday’s at 4pm in Carolina Wildlife. At this program we talk about our exhibit reptiles or any you have questions about and we feed our snakes and alligators.

I graduated from NCSU(go pack) and have worked in the animal department for about 8 years. Some of my favorites include ferrets and birds. I am also known for my weird obsession with Boba Fett.
I work Tuesday-Saturday in either the Farmyard or inside the main building behind the scenes.

Chummix the goat/duck/rabbit

September 19th, 2012

Earlier you would have seen the rabbits in their outside enclosure. However, a lot is going on in the farm yard. The rabbits have moved to the other side of their barn and when the duck goes in for the night he now stays on the rabbits old side.

This morningChummix had to temporarily go into the ducks enclosure because of all the new construction and repainting that is going on in the farm yard. Chummix didn’t seem to mind too much, he had plenty of “duck hay” to eat and got a mega treat reward from Keeper Kent.
