Education: BS, Psychology, Florida Institute of Technology

Assignment: Wild Florida

On the job since: 2017

Favorite animals to work with: Gizmo the scarlet macaw

Fun with a purpose: “Visiting the Zoo is a lot of fun, but my hope is that our guests take something away from their time with us,” Julie says. “Do some research about the animals you saw and learn what you can do to protect them in their habitat, then share that information with your friends.”
