WBS Staff Member of The Year Lisbeth Hodges

Lisbeth Hodges began her career with World Bird Sanctuary  in February 2010.

We are glad Lisbeth is with us. She makes each guest’s visit better. She is always enthusiastic and informative and greets all guests with a smile and conversation.

Lisbeth loves birds and has raised many of her own. She has pet parrots and has  even helped some of her birds’ eggs hatch.

Lisbeth began her career with the World Bird Sanctuary with a three-month  internship.  She then demonstrated her desire to continue with World Bird Sanctuary by doing another three-month internship.  She began by working for World Bird Sanctuary as a seasonal employee at our Grant's Farm bird show for two seasons, taking care of our Bald Eagles and other birds we had there for the education programs.

Lisbeth now works at our Nature Center as a Naturalist, caring for our Office of Wildlife Learning birds, and greeting guests.  She routinely enriches our creatures with exercise or love.

This year she was given the Staff Member Of The Year award at the World Bird Sanctuary annual Holiday Party Awards Ceremony—a well-deserved honor for this hard working young lady.
