A former aircraft mechanic and firefighter, Marion immigrated from Germany to live with her American husband. Working in veterinary medicine is her third career. She is studying to become a Licensed Veterinary Technician. She never misses the opportunity to learn, even if it means coming in on her days off to attend certain procedures, or to perform clinical tasks required for school.
Marion is an active cat rescuer. She leads Spay to Save’s TNR Program (Trap-Neuter-Return). The work of her team has reduced the feral cat populations in many areas around the Peninsula. Since 2014 they have trapped and fixed over one thousand cats! Marion and her husband Lee like to restore antique airplanes, and share their home and hangar with several feline family members!
