How long have you worked at Adventure Aquarium?
7 months

Best thing about working at Adventure Aquarium?
I love that I get to work with almost every department at the Aquarium! As a naturally curious person, it is an honor to learn from my co-workers who are each experts in their field. Also, being surrounded by ocean creatures is incredibly inspiring and reminds me daily of why I do what I do!

What's your tip for Guests?
Make sure to stop by my friends Sydney and Brisbane the laughing kookaburras on your way to Pirate’s Passage. They may seem like statues but if you are lucky enough they will start cackling at you! My best advice for visiting the Aquarium is to come during the week, right when we open and take your time at each exhibit – you never know what you might be missing upon your first observation! Oh, and don’t miss out on the trumpetfish, I just love him!

Best thing about working at Adventure Aquarium?
I get to work with some of my favorite animals everyday, and work to conserve them in the wild.

Favorite aquarium animal?
Definitely the octopus, because how can you not!? They are super smart, and unlike any other animal I have ever worked with. Another animal that stole my heart though is the yellow stingray in the Lionfish exhibit. He's a hidden gem, I love him SO MUCH.
