Favourite aquatic animal in the aquarium?
Stingrays! Especially the freshwater rays.

Best part about working at Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada?
Working with animals, learning tons of cool things about those animals, and then sharing them with guests.

Any other fun facts about you?
I grew up in a town called The Pas, which is north of the 53rd parallel in Manitoba and the home of the World Championship Dogsled Races.

What made you decide you wanted to pursue a career in Education/Marine biology?
I actually have a degree in Visual Art & Art History, but I’ve always loved and respected animals and I have a background in education within museum type environments so I thought the aquarium would be a great fit for me!
