Meet the team: Jane Ward
Published: Apr 19, 2019Meet our office supervisor Jane Ward!
Hi my name’s Beth and I’m the Marketing Assistant here at Newquay Zoo. To continue on with our Meet the Team Q&A, I have met up with Jane to find out a little more about her… so here goes!
What department do you work in and what is your role?
I work in reception as the office supervisor.
How long have you worked here?
I have worked here for a year now.
What made you want to work at the zoo?
Well, as well as being interested in animals I do actually have a degree in animal behavior and have worked for the past 27 years in a veterinary practice. So I thought why not combine my administrative practice with my love for animals.
Tell us an interesting fact about yourself...
I am a championship show dog judge – travelling all over the UK and also to the World Championships in Germany.
What’s your favorite animal and why?
I would have to say a lion because of their sheer power and how beautiful they are.
Who are the 3 guests you would invite to your dream dinner party (dead or alive)?
- Peter Kay (for the humour)
- Stephen Fry (as he’s very interesting)
- Elvis Presley (for his looks back in the day)
What’s your favorite colour?
What’s your favorite food?
Cake – any cake!
What superpower would you like to have?
Definitely to be invisible as I’m quite nosy!
What’s your favorite film?
100% Shaun of the Dead – I just think it’s a fab film and so funny! However, Life of Brian is a very close second.
Stay tuned to meet more of the team.
