Working here, I am a part of the Lehigh Valley's zoological park, tucked away in the Trexler Nature Preserve, Schnecksville, Pennsylvania. Part of the Guest Services department, I work in the two gift shops, the Nature Store and the General Store, and the two food vendors, the Caf and Farm Concessions. My experiences include cooking and preparing food for guests, using a cash register, selling merchandise, being available to help transport items and clean up trash, interacting with young children, and assisting wherever needed at after-hours events. I work during the summer and, previously, worked some weekends during the academic year. During the zoo's "Winter Lights Spectacular," I served hot chocolate and small food items.
