Arcena is currently getting cross trained as a veterinary assistant. Having a background in medical assisting, she would love to extend that to our pets. She has been with Banfield since October 2016 but is a lifetime pet parent. Arcena's love for animals began when she was a child and fondly remembers always being surrounded by dogs growing up. She graduated from NC State University and Brookstone College for Medicine. In her spare time, Arcena loves to read, write and blog, and even hosts a podcast where she reviews current and retro TV/movies! She had a Great Dane named Dolan that was as huge part of her life, but recently had to say go goodbye to him. She now has a pit bull named Hawk and a mixed breed named Neoma.
