Before joining the POMDR clinic staff in February 2021, Koren worked with animals for many years, including a variety of critters at a wildlife facility in Merlin, Oregon and at the Portland Zoo. She previously did a tremendous amount of work with POMDR dogs while employed at Carmel Holistic Veterinary Clinic, and has had the opportunity to work closely with some of the best veterinarians and board certified surgeons on the peninsula.
Koren attended Monterey Peninsula College and Hartnell College before moving to Oregon to finish her studies at Rogue College and receive her degree and license as a Veterinary Technician. She has continued her education through the years, focusing on anesthesia and dentistry.
Aside from working with animals, she enjoys cooking, gardening and hiking and spending time with her son.
