Meet The doGoners!
Marta White, Owner
Marta’s innate passion for animals has led to a lifetime of experience caring for pets. She grew up with a menagerie of dogs, cats, and horses (amongst other various critters). She has ten years experience running her own pet care business and also worked 12 years as a veterinary technician, primarily at the South Bay Veterinary Group in Boston. Marta graduated from Mount Holyoke College with a BA in biology. When not busy caring for Boston’s pets, Marta enjoys spending time with her dachshund and rescue kitty, Gilbert and Sullivan. She also travels to Pepperell, MA daily to care for and ride her horse, Nevyn, who she trains and rides competitively.
Throughout her life, Emily has always had a passion for animals. Growing up Emily adored the dogs that were a part of her family, giving her a particular soft spot for man’s best friend. Emily attended Quincy College after high school and completed all of her pre-requisites for a degree in nursing. She has nine years experience in the health care field; five of those years were spent caring for patients, and the last four were spent in administration. During those years, Emily cared for several of her friend’s pets while they were away on vacation and thoroughly enjoyed doing so. After much consideration, Emily made a personal and professional decision to change careers and follow her passion for animals. When not busy providing the utmost care for the pets of Boston, Emily enjoys spending time with her Miniature Dachshund, Frank, and Boston Terrier, Tuko. She also enjoys watching movies, listening to music and spending time with her family and friends.
