Thalena graduated from the Florida Institute of Technology with a Bachelors Degree in Management Science and a Masters Degree in Computer Science. She had always been passionate about working with animals, so she finally followed her heart and transitioned into the veterinary field.

Some of her favorite aspects of working as a client care coordinator are interacting with both animals and their humans to create a real difference in their lives.

In her free time, Thalena enjoys running marathons, playing with her dogs and skiing. She is also and avid volunteer with Golden Retriever Freedom Rescue (GRFR) and Snowcapped Shepherd Rescue (SCSR).

At home, Thalena’s two dogs (Porter and Gemma), two Cats (Casey and Sebastian), two birds (Cali and Tiki), plus one or two foster dogs at any given time, keep her very busy.
