Lena is originally from Clearwater, Florida.  She received her AS degree in veterinary technology from St. Petersburg Junior College (now St. Petersburg College) in 1996.  She is a Registered Veterinary Technician in North Carolina. She knew very early that she wanted to work in the veterinary field.

 After getting her AS degree, she decided that she wanted to stay in the nursing aspect of veterinary medicine to be the voice of her patients.  Lena has spent her 25+ years growing her veterinary nursing skills in all aspects of general and specialty veterinary medicine.  Her first love is for neurology and the seizure patient.  Second to that, specialty surgery has her heart. She enjoys being in a leadership role because it allows her to mentor and watch other veterinary technicians grow in their skills and knowledge.

Outside of the ER, Lena and her husband are ruled by their 6-pound Chihuahua, Tito.  They also spend time with the other family pets that have moved out to live with their adult children.  Bill, the 15yr old Chiweenie (chihuahua-dachshund), Gronk, the 8yr old Pug, and Murphy, the 4yr old Pyrenees mix.
