Professional Internships

This team, this one in a million team, shaped my whole life. It has been an honor and truly a privilege to know them. If you ever wonder about the dedication of a zoological trainer, and the profound relationship that can be nurtured between animal and trainer, this is the example that has set the standard, for me and many others in the field and in life.
