I am a multi-talented writer, media designer, and animal behaviorist currently located in Orlando, Florida. I have 10 years of experience working at a not-for-profit wildlife facility doing just about everything: handling socialized exotic canids; preparing promotional materials; purchasing and design for a gift shop; organizing special events; web design; technical writing; and even digital photography. In fact, I still volunteer there, doing their advertising, calendar, and web site: check it out at www.wolfpark.org!
Currently, I am a graphic designer and administrator at Stages Plus in Orlando! My goal is to obtain long-term employment working with or near animals in a creative, administrative, bookkeeping, training and/or husbandry capacity.
I have extensive experience in:
- animal behavior, husbandry, handling, medication, and training
- technical writing, publications, photography, and media design
- computer hardware and software, including web creation
- office management, accounting, public relations, and customer service
I am in search of employment in a capacity where I am challenged to expand my horizons, where there is always something new to learn, and where I can do some good in the world. If you are in need of an animal behaviorist, animal handler, dog trainer, technical writer, photographer, etc., please contact me at jessaddams (at) gmail (dot) com.
