Meet the Expert: Gretchen Burson, Aquarist II at the Georgia Aquarium
My name is Gretchen Burson. I am an Aquarist II at the Georgia Aquarium. I have worked there for the past 5.5 years. I graduated from University of West Georgia with a BS in Biology with a concentration in Marine Science. I have worked with multiple species from sea stars to whale sharks. My favorite animal to work with right now is our bowmouth guitar fish. I plan on working here for as long as I can and getting every opportunity to work with every anshoe!
I have a dog. Her name is Quinn. I don’t know what kind of dog she is. Perhaps a beagle, brindle hound mix. She was found on the side of the rode. She’s my favorite. I am married to my husband Zach for almost 3 years and I have a 7 year old step daughter named Sadie who loves Harry Potter, unicorns and collecting rocks. Oh and we have a cat named Lip. He just exists in the same space as us and wrestles the dog when he’s bored.
