Meet Nancy Sadusky, Save the Manatee Club
1) Any childhood memory that was important in guiding you into your occupation?;
how did you become interested in this Field?
The best part of my job is that occasionally I get to go out and see manatees!
5) What advice can you provide to a student who might be interested inworking in your occupation some day?
If students are interested in working with marine mammals, they might want to visit the SMC web site and go to the "Manatee Links and More" page. We have a link there to career information put together by the Society for Marine Mammology. It's a really good, comprehensive source of career info put together by professionals who are working in the field.
If you are interested in working with an environmental organization, I would also suggest reading the book, "The Complete Guide to Environmental Careers" produced by the CEIP Fund.

Also, volunteering during the summer or when you have some spare timeis a good way to get good experience. Many times, an organizationwill hire from their volunteers when a job comes open.
6) Any family members, including pets? I am the second oldest child of a family of seven. I'm married and have one dog (Dixie) and two cats (Coco and Misha).
7) Favorite book(s), Favorite food(s), Any hobbies?
My favorite foods are pasta and chocolate (not together!) and I love to get outside and go hiking whenever possible. My fantasy life involves living in a log cabin on a lake in the middle of the woods with no phone and a canoe standing by!!
I'm looking forward to working with you and answering YOUR questions about manatees.
