Answer the question you selected for profile question 2 here (300 words):
A typical day for me begins with taking care of my many animals and birds at my house....feeding 3 dogs, 6 cats, 2 cockatiels and 2 button quail...and then going outside to feed and water my 11 chickens, 2 guinea fowl, goose and my duck. After that I go to work at RIT to manage the greenhouse, the animal room where we keep mice, Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches, Dermestid beetles and a mealworm colony. I also instruct some laboratory classes and serve as the safety officer for the department. My office is in the stockroom and I manage this area as well along with the army of college students we employ.
