I recently had unexpected surgery. The museum staff is like a big family and many people have offered their help. In lieu of cooked meals (because I’m vegan and didn’t want to make a kind gesture an annoying task) many people donated money and Sherry was kind enough to make several grocery store trips to load me up with pre-packaged goodies for my recovery. I honestly didn’t expect anything and was quite tickled with the kindness of my co-workers.
I just wanted to thank the museum staff for their positive thoughts, kind words, and donations. And a super HUGE thank you to all of the Animal Keepers and Volunteers for covering my shifts, picking up things I drop, handing me things from the top or bottom shelf, lifting-reaching-carrying for me, and for keeping me laughing and smiling through all of this. Thanks guys! I feel very lucky to be part of this team.
