How long have you been @ CWC?
almost 3 years
What shift(s) are you on?
I work in the laundry room. In the winter when there are fewer patients I am scheduled for Sun and Wed AM. During the summer months, the busy time of the year, I am usually in the laundry room almost every day for a few hours, depending on how much laundry there is to be done. Sometimes there is a lot.
Do you have a field of study (past or present)?
No, I came to CWC because of my interest in the resident vultures and thought I could help care for all the animals in need by working in the laundry room.
Are you employed outside of your CWC volunteer position?
I am retired from OSU.
What is your favorite part about volunteering at CWC?
Seeing all the injured and orphaned animals recover and returned to the wild.
Do you have a favorite or most memorable patient (past or present)?
I like all of the patients and resident animals at CWC. I am grateful to be able to help out in a small way so others can care for them. I do have a special affinity for the resident vultures, Ferdinand and Junior, and the resident mice.
What is something that your shift may not know about you?
I have two Dachshunds that are my constant companions.
What book is currently on your nightstand?
I have two. Animals Make Us Human by Temple Grandin, and Proof by Dick Francis
What music is in your car right now?
The all-classical station in Portland, OR
