I grew up in a few different places including Australia but before moving to Great Bend I lived in North Carolina. I went to college at Appalachian State where I majored in Biology with a concentrations in Ecology and environmental biology and minored in geography. I've always loved being outdoors ad being around animals. And I always know that I was going to work with animals in some way but I decided to be a zookeeper when I was in college. I did multiple internships and had a seasonal position before accepting a job here. I have been here for over two years now and I never get bored. I love working with such a wide variety of animals. It's such a privilege to care for them and to develop such special bonds with them. When I'm not working I like hanging out with my dog and cat, going hiking and playing games.
