Leonora Marquez Barbenena

Veterinary Assistant | CFVP Certified
I have always had a passion for animals since I was a little girl. My love started with ocean animals, especially dolphins. This led me to work with marine mammals for over 20 years, and have created a bond with them that I will always carry in my heart. I am originally from Mexico and took 1.5 years of vet school back home. However, life took me to Cancun and then eventually to Canada which I now call my home. Here, I joined the amazing team at Cottonwood, which I now call my new work family. I love learning new things every day and being able to help and support our patients and clients through hard times.
