Best thing about working at Adventure Aquarium?

The best part of my job is sharing my knowledge with our guests and Scuba Diving! 

What I wish guests knew about Adventure Aquarium?

The husbandry team at Adventure Aquarium are full of dedicated, hardworking, smart, caring, and passionate individuals. The work of an Adventure Aquarium biologist is not glamorous, and it takes a special kind of dedication to provide care to our animals that require attention 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Being a biologist is more than just a job. It’s a career, it’s a passion, it’s a calling.

My favorite spot at Adventure Aquarium?

The half circle window in Hippo Haven’s, underwater viewing. This window gives you a unique view of Button, Genny and all the different species of fish that share their home. 

Favorite aquarium animal?  

African Penguins, especially #48… her name is Marina. 😊 She is very smart and knows her name!
