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.

Nap time

May 17th, 2013

Godzilla, one of our bearded dragons, is famous for napping in random positions.

Check out this previous post about his strange napping habits.

This particular sleeping position was excitedly pointed out to me by one of our latest interns Jamie.

Check him out:

 

Godzilla has no issues getting comfortable

I've been at the Museum sooooo long - longer than many of our interns have been alive. I do a little bit of everything as part of my job: care for the animals, work with the keepers and other staff, spend time with guests. Lucky me!
I spend a lot of time behind-the-scenes, or here after hours, but if you really want to see me, you'll have to sign-up for a behind-the-scenes program.

A Goodbye Present!

April 25th, 2013

Interns Jamie and Jessica finished their work with us last week and gave us a goodbye present.

Jamie, on the left crying, painted the picture for us that Jessica is holding.

 

We were happy and impressed with our present:

Sarah, Kimberly, and Jessi (L-R)

We’ll miss Jamie and Jessica and wish them well at their summer internship sites (Jessica is heading to the Western NC Nature Center in Asheville and Jamie is heading to the Knoxville Zoo).

Zookeeper or Hair Stylist?

April 5th, 2013

Our current interns have been mentioned a few times. One of my favorite things about having interns is when they have been here awhile and really relax and let you see who they really are. (actually I think these two were relaxed from day 1)

I walked into the office the other day and witnessed this…

Jessica Intern

Wait for it…

Jamie Intern is quite proud of herself!

Intern Update

March 22nd, 2013

Jessica (with Salt the chinchilla) and Jamie (with Dixie the ferret)

 

Our interns, Jamie and Jessica, have less than 4 weeks left in their semester with us. I can’t believe their time is ending. They’ve finished their training with our education animals and can now work in the rooms on their own.

They’ve been doing great and we’re happy to have them here.

Intern Enrichment Project

February 21st, 2013

Our Interns, Jessica and Jamie, have started their enrichment project. They are interning with us Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, and on Tuesdays and Thursdays they take classes. for one of their classes they have to do an enrichment project for an animal. They decided to work with Henry, our woodchuck, to see if they could get him more active. We’ll report back (if you want) later in the semester to see what they learned, but in the meantime, here are some photos of what they built and their first day of watching Henry with their item:

Ready to go

 

 

Henry watches from his bed at first

Jamie and Jessica take notes diligently hoping for some interaction.

Henry engages

FYI- I went back and checked and only one of the whiffle balls is still hanging up. Seems like he’s been having some fun.
