Best Job Ever: Nikki Dinsmore, Sea Otter Aquarist

When we sought out to find a best job ever worthy of our blog’s redesign launch week, we couldn’t have imagined a better candidate than the one we found in sea otter aquarist Nikki Dinsmore. Videographer Jon and I headed down the California coast for a behind-the-scenes look at what goes on at the world-famous Monterey Bay Aquarium.

Can’t get enough of Nikki and her furry friends? Be sure to check out Nikki’s namesake dress!

    I just spent all week in Monterey, and went to the aquarium basically every day. The otters are amazing and Nikki seriously has the best job in the world.

    I visited Monterey with my family when I was eleven and was mesmerized by watching the sea otter antics! So lovely to get a second glimpse again!
