About: “I really appreciate the opportunity to work with incredible animals every day. I also really enjoy seeing people's faces light up and inspiring the next generations about how important wildlife and conservation are.
My favourite ZooLab animal would have to be my corn snake - Korn!
He's a rescue snake; unfortunately, his body is quite misshapen, due to incorrect care given by his previous owners. This doesn't hold him back - he is super friendly and very inquisitive.
Children often ask why he looks the way he does, which helps raise the children's awareness about the importance of animal care, welfare and rescue."
Interesting Fact: Emily is also a concert queen and has seen over 150 bands live! Rock On!
