There is absolutely nothing like my Momma's home-made macaroni and cheese!

Favorite Animal at the Zoo:
All of our animals charm me. Our hornbills have beautiful eyes, our elephants have such sweet souls and Tahoma is so stately and grand – I can't pick a favorite.
Best work memory at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo? I got to feed Jumbe, our black rhino, and it was incredible! I also had an opportunity to feed Lucky, one of our African elephants, and that experience was wonderful as well.
What do you enjoy the most about working at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo? I enjoy the people the most. Cheyenne Mountain Zoo staff are so welcoming and fun, and I couldn't ask for better mentors or peers.
What is your biggest accomplishment while working at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo? My biggest accomplishment while working at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo is developing a rapport with each of our staff members to ensure they utilize their unique talents to benefit the Zoo. We have an incredible staff and everyone is so invested in the Zoo.
