Zoo Ambassador

July 2018 Chicago, IL
“Amazing people to work with and is a very educational position ”

Events Intern

June 2018 - August 2018 Chicago, IL
“It was the perfect opportunity for me to learn more about what all is out there in the event planning industry. Many people don't think of zoos when it comes to an event career, but anywhere there are events, there's someone needed to plan them. I liked that I got to help with so many things, including getting the experience of going to all kinds of meeting between departments. Of course, I love animals, so being able to come to the zoo every day was great, too.”
