Even though Katelyn lived in New Hampshire, she often visited her grandparents and other relatives in the Cincinnati area and going to the zoo had always been a family tradition. During her summer of 2007 visit, she requested information about various internship opportunities available at the zoo. She was referred to the zoo's web site and filled out an application:  http://www.cincinnatizoo.org

"As an environmental educator, I had the opportunity to be a part of two worlds, because I had the chance to work with both animals and children. I was responsible for a group of children each week ranging in ages from 3-11 years old. Those responsibilities includes teaching and care taking of the children; that incorporated classroom learning, zoo hikes, and live animal demonstrations. The combination of animals and children at the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Gardens was an absolutely incredible and unforgettable experience. There are multiple skills that I have learned through this internship that I believe will help me have a competitive edge in the job world."
