Marlena Folden, D.V.M.
Dr. Folden is really excited to be a part of the new team here at Broadway Animal Hospital. She brings over nine years of veterinary experience to us. After graduating from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine in 2008, she practiced emergency and general medicine in the Coachella Valley until 2014. Dr. Folden always wanted to return to Humboldt County to live, work, and play, as she was a previous HSU student athlete. She and her husband had also started raising their family here before leaving for veterinary school. Since 2014, she has worked at various local hospitals until recently, when the opportunity to purchase Broadway Animal Hospital became a dream come true.
“I love veterinary medicine. There are so many opportunities to engage in the aspects I love while I get to play a role in improving people and animal’s lives and bonds. You will find me always making important pet health decisions with you, the best we can.”
Emergency medicine, wellness, feline medicine, dentistry, and dermatology are a few of her veterinary interests. In her spare time, you may find her hanging out at the beach or hiking with her family and three dogs. Other times, she might be curled up with any of her six kitties. And don’t forget the three turtles, Daisy, LT, and Lilly; she has many stories to tell about them.
