The Safari heads back down to Nashville to chat with Melinda Kommavongsa, a quarantine and veterinary team keeper at the Nashville Zoo! We discuss Melinda's path to becoming a zookeeper, and she shares all kinds of cool animal stories from her time on the ambassador animal show team and then in her new position, which allows her to work with almost every animal at the zoo! This interview was so packed with information, I decided to split it into two parts, so this is part one of two!
