Getting to Know... Alex and New Posts!

Hi Everyone!
I wanted to provide an opportunity to help you get to know our staff and volunteers here at ARF that are helping provide care for your foster animals! I went to our adoption, animal care, behavior, clinic teams and asked them to answer a few questions, so you'll see some new posts in the next few weeks!


Name: Alex Christman
Job: Foster Supervisor
What is your favorite thing about your job?
I love many things about my job, so I'm going to list a few! I enjoy working with passionate individuals trying to make the world a better place to live in even if it is one life at a time. Finding good foster matches and hearing the excitement and happiness when I check in is awesome, but I also enjoy helping fosters learn and seeing when things click!
Favorite Color:
Some days it is green, other days red.
Favorite Animal:
Elephants! 
Any fun fact you want the fosters to know?
If I wasn't doing this, I'd probably go back to developing new food products!
