Aquarium Welcomes New Special Events Assistant and Outreach Coordinator

For two part-time employees at the NC Aquarium at Fort Fisher, 2009 was an eventful year. When two full-time positions opened in the departments that Emily Bullock and Jennifer Fiorino were working in, they both jumped at the opportunity to interview. Both openings brought in great potential candidates, and after the interviewing process was completed, the Aquarium was able to offer the positions to Bullock and Fiorino.

When Emily Bullock joined the team at the Aquarium as a special events assistant in 2008, she always hoped the temporary position would become permanent. With the success of the rental program at the Aquarium, management was able to create a full-time, permanent position, paid for out of receipts earned in the rental program. Bullock applied and interviewed for the job, and the Aquarium is proud to announce her appointment to the position. She looks forward to expanding the Aquarium’s rental program.

Jennifer Fiorino has always worked in the environmental education field. After moving to the coastal region of North Carolina in 2008, she was hired as the assistant outreach coordinator at the Aquarium. When the full-time position for outreach coordinator became vacant this fall, Fiorino was excited to apply for the job, which is funded with admission receipts. She plans to continue to take the outreach program to new and exciting heights in the future.

“I’m delighted that we’ve been able to promote two very talented young women into permanent, full-time positions. We know they are going to perform to the highest expectations based on their recent excellent performances as temporary employees at the Aquarium,” says Director Donna Moffitt.
