Stephanie Cameron has several things to enjoy about her new job – including opportunities to touch an elephant and feed a rhinoceros and two giraffes.
Cameron, of Fern Prairie, has been hired by the Oregon Zoo as the marketing communications manager. She succeeds Jane Hartline, who retired in June.
“The animals are amazing, and I am really enjoying learning about each of them,” Cameron said. “They fascinate me, and I could watch them for hours.
Her job includes overseeing events and design services at the zoo.
“I am responsible for the marketing and communications team, which includes graphic design, photography/videography, marketing and advertising, public relations and web/social media,” Cameron said. “There are many great events and activities to promote in addition to visiting the animals.”
Those events and activities include the zoo’s summer concert series and Zoolights. An exhibit about dinosaurs is expected to return to the zoo in the near future, and there are spaces available for private events.
