Play • 1 hr 4 min

Welcome back to our Cast Member stories series and part 2 of a 2 part episode with Vet Services Intern Alumni Janine.

We continue our discussion about some of the unique cases she witnessed and took part in caring for. She shares how she got to be in the room as a silverback Gorilla underwent surgery for a foot injury, assisting in the aftercare of an African elephant that had to undergo an episiotomy to remove her stillborn baby and save her life. 

We dig into misconceptions about working in Zoo related Veterinary fields, overcoming real life battles with comparison during her college career, and some of her personal struggles interacting with guests.

She also lays out some important advice for anyone hired into any level of the Disney College Program.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the nature of handling and caring for wildlife, this episode contains material that may be considered graphic for some listeners.
