Taking Ownership of Tasks
Mikayla’s first rotation was in the Aquatic and Reptiles Center. She was very thorough when performing her tasks and took ownership of them. Her tasks included cleaning the cricket bins, harvesting and hatching brine-shrimp (sea monkeys), preparing lizard and tortoise salads, and cutting fish for the Amazon River tank and Pacific tank.
The manager, Billie, mentioned on more than one occasion how helpful it is to have an intern there, especially when they are short-staffed.
