"The Saint Louis Zoo has always been my favorite place in the world. Now that I work here, I get to enjoy it every day. I love that no matter how different all of our jobs are, whether they are directly taking care of animals, working on the front end with donors and customers, or behind the scenes like me, we are all working hard for our individual animals and the conservation of animals in the wild."
