I am thrilled to begin the New Year at the Wildlife Center, performing a job that I love, and continuing to learn as much as possible before my time here ends!

It was a successful day spent fulfilling our mission and one of my favorite memories of 2018.
If you ask me, working hands-on with the Center’s education ambassadors nearly every day is one of the best things about being in the outreach department.
I had an amazing experience as an extern here at the Center and I am eager to see more unique species come in. Now that I am working at the front desk, I am especially excited to be the person admitting these patients!
It seems that no matter what life throws at this group, whether that be a traffic jam, an ice storm, a prolonged power outage, or a foot of snow overnight, they all are able to handle it with dignity and positivity.
By far the most memorable moment of 2018 was the day of the ice storm on November 15th.
One memory that stands out of all others would have to be the call I received during my first week after training.
It is the small, but special, moments that stand out for me. I get back much more than I give.

Becoming a part of this community, getting to know the people who make possible all the amazing things that happen here, and having an impact on conservation, I’m in my natural environment!
