What do you like best about your job?
I like working with the animals and being able to be outside.
What do you like least about your job?
In the winter I have to work with the animals outdoors. When it is very cold, it is really not fun at all being outside all day. You have to wear lots of layers of clothing.

My favorite animal at the zoo is the tiger.
Is your job hard?
Yes, sometimes my job is hard . It's a very physical job. You need to do stuff like rake leaves and work outside in rain and snow.

The coolest thing that's happened on my job is seeing a baby giraffe getting born.
How long have you been working here?
I have been working here for 13 years.
What animals do you work with?
I work with all the animals.
How did you get your job?
I used to live in Florida, but then I moved to Delaware. After I arrived here, I went to the zoo and applied for a job. This spot was available, so I took the job.
