For our Volunteer of the Month in March, we’re bringing it back to our visitors by recognizing an individual who has served as both volunteer and intern in the Visitor Education department. Her commitment to our mission and her communication skills have made this month's winner an incredible asset over the past 4 years, and we’re grateful for the impact she’s made on countless visitors!
Congratulations to Robi Zallen!
|Robi, a smiling face in Visitor Education|
Robi Zallen recently celebrated her 4-year anniversary as a volunteer in Visitor Education, where she has great success both as an Aquarium Guide and as an Intern. She is eager, enthusiastic and very competent. She is willing to do anything that is needed and has dedicated many hours learning outside her regular shift.
Robi always asks pertinent questions and follows through with visitors. Her natural, intuitive ability to communicate and her background in psychology generate a perfect ambiance for successful interpretation with visitors. Her professionalism, openness, friendly attitude, and depth of knowledge make her an excellent mentor for others.
I am always impressed by Robi’s motivation to seek feedback and by her commitment to improvement. Robi has demonstrated dedication to learning, teaching and making a positive contribution to the mission of the New England Aquarium.
Stop by on a Wednesday and be sure to learn a few things from this knowledgeable volunteer!
