Hometown: Chillicothe, OH
Internship: Aquatic Animal Husbandry intern through the WAVE Foundation at the Newport
Location: Newport, Kentucky
Internship Responsibilities: The creature that makes the Newport Aquarium so unique and special is the shark ray.

They're incredible creatures and I was lucky enough to feed them and help care for them!
