Cathy, Park President

Favorite thing to do at Sesame Place: I love watching the kids interact with the characters. The connection is amazing and makes you want to be a kid all over again.
Park visitation tip: If you haven’t visited during The Count's Halloween Spooktacular or A Very Furry Christmas, they are a MUST DO!

Caitlyn, Human Resources Coordinator
Favorite Sesame Street Friend: Cookie Monster
Favorite thing to do at Sesame Place: I love getting a funnel cake before watching the Neighborhood Street Party Parade!
What I love about my job: I love that I have had the opportunity to grow during my time at Sesame Place. I started in 2010 in Games and Vending. After two years in that department, I switched into Aquatics, joined the Leadership Team, and finally transitioned into Human Resources last year after graduating from college!
Curita, Finance Manager
Favorite Sesame Street Friend: Segi
Favorite thing to do at Sesame Place: Watch the shows. I love live entertainment!
What I love about my job: I enjoy interacting with others on all different levels of the organization and across all functional areas. I like that this interaction gives me the opportunity to learn new things every day.
Olivia, Rides Supervisor
Favorite Sesame Street Friend: Telly Monster
Park Visitation Tip: The best times to ride the Sunny Day Carousel and Vapor Trail are during the parade. You’ll probably be able to ride several times without much of a wait at all!
What I love about my job: Getting to put smiles on guests’ faces and working with my best friends every day!
Jenn, Marketing Vice President
Favorite Sesame Street Friend: Ernie
Favorite thing to do at Sesame Place: I love riding Super Grover’s Vapor Trail Coaster with my 10 year old son and my 6 year old daughter. My daughter made us ride it 3 times in a row last year, and I am 99% sure we reached my MAX turns.
What I love about my job: I love that my job is never predictable…no two days are ever the same! I love that I can walk out of my office and into the middle of thousands of family vacations, group trips, and first visits in the park. If I need a break from a presentation, I can literally jump onto a roller coaster for a time out! But my most favorite part of the job is the fact that I work with all of the Sesame Street characters. I grew up on Sesame Street, watching it with my grandmother. It’s a huge part of my childhood and being part of growing and protecting the Sesame Street brand makes me happy to go to work every single day.
Victoria, Operations Manager
Favorite Sesame Street Friend: Zoe
What I love about my job: I’m very fortunate to work at the place that has given me so many happy childhood memories, and I enjoy working with the Operations team to ensure that every guest leaves the park with memories that will last a lifetime.
Lauren, Vice President of Merchandise
Favorite Sesame Street Friend: Cookie Monster and Telly Monster
Favorite thing to do at Sesame Place: I love to watch the Neighborhood Street Party Parade. I think it’s one of the most unique and exciting things we do here at Sesame Place. I try to sneak out of my office at least once a week to watch the parade from beginning to end. Sometimes I even get a little choked up because it makes me so happy! I also get so much enjoyment watching our guests experience the parade excitement. Whether it is watching a 2 year old scream when Big Bird high fives him or seeing a Dad spinning his daughter around and around to the music, the parade is a truly magical experience.
What I love about my job: Having the opportunity to work with the amazing Sesame Street brand and bring the brand to life for so many guests, young and old.
Alexis, Operations Manager
Favorite Sesame Street Friend: Abby Cadabby
Favorite thing to do at Sesame Place: I grew up coming to Sesame Place every summer as a kid but mainly came to enjoy the rides. Now that I work here, my favorite part is working the Neighborhood Street Party Parade– it’s the biggest event in the park each day and I love how the characters interact with the kids.
What I love about my job: I am very blessed to be able to work in a field that I am very passionate about because it is not a job to me. I enjoy being able to come in everyday and do what I love and to share my passion with others!
Kim, Director of Merchandise
Favorite Sesame Street Friend: Ovejita (Murray’s little lamb)
Favorite thing to do at Sesame Place: I love being a photographer in the park and capturing picture perfect moments for visiting guests!
Park visitation tip: Did you know, Elmo and some his friends are available all day at our photo area, located in Cookie’s Monster Land, between Monster Mix-Up and Honker Dinger Derby? You can get a photo, a hug and even an autograph!
What I love about my job: I get to work every day with an amazing group of individuals who deliver a great experience daily. We get to assist in creating new products in the park, we develop new experiences for guests and so much more. The best part of any day, is seeing the impact the park has on so many kids and families. You know you’ve done a good job when you hear the kids talk so excitedly about everything they experienced that day!
