Marlena joined our team at Briar Meadows in January 2012. Marlena has over 10 years’ experience as a veterinary technician, working in an emergency clinic, a regular practice and for a dermatology specialist. Not only does she bring years of medical experience but Marlena has also been a dog trainer for over 5 years. She decided to move out of the clinical environment to learn more about dog behavior, playtime, dog discipline and watching dogs teach other dogs. Marlena has 3 roommates, Jersey a cat, Prudence an American Eskimo mix and Ty a beagle. When Marlena isn’t working at the kennel she enjoys hiking, cooking, photography, training and competing in triathlons.  Marlena is an amazing and vital part of our team here at Briar Meadows.
