Michelle Citrinite

Artist, Volunteer, and Theme Park Employee in Orlando, Florida

I'm not afraid to jump right in and get my hands dirty. Whether it's helping co-workers, animals, or guests, I'm always ready to lend a helping hand.

I'm currently working in the Hospitality industry, as a Games Keeper at Universal Orlando Resorts. I love working in Theme Parks and other hands on jobs, where my interactions with guests have the potential to make a huge impact on their vacations and lives.

My current goal is to go back to school to finish my Associates degree in Education, and to attend the Animal Behavior College in Florida. I'd like to eventually make a career working with and training animals, both domestic and wild. I have a passion for conservation and especially want to work with predatory animals and reptiles, to help educate the general public on why they (and all animals) are important.

My past experience includes 3 years in FFA, where I served in various leadership roles, participated in many character building projects and programs, and achieved the highest honors in the organization. I also participated in the UHS Veterinary Program for three years, which taught me many valuable skills. I have volunteered for the Sanford Farm Swap and Izzy Critter Auction, where I was admin volunteer, handling paperwork and processing transactions for both organizations, along with the Central Florida Fairgrounds, in which I assisted with the building of the barn and the running of the agriculture shows.

I have worked for many different types of companies, from Veterinary Hospitals to retail and pet supply stores to Theme Parks and many things in between. I have had various roles in each field I've worked in, and have grown substantially from each job I have held. I am considered a "well rounded" and "highly valued worker" by my current management, and I am looking to further myself and my career with more experiences.
