Just as the Bay Area is one of the best places in the world to live, it's also one of the best places to work. Case in point? The life of Nikki Dinsmore, an aquarist at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. She gets to be in the sun all day, palling around with the cutest, furriest creatures in the ocean: sea otters! Not to mention help educate the public about how special these pups really are.

Watch the video below, as this adorable gal feeds the otters shrimp, play with them, and profess her love for ocean animals. We want your job, Nikki!
