Marla is Canadian by heart, but Panamanian by choice! During her first visit to Panama, with her husband, she fell in love with this country, not only for its great infrastructure, but its generous people, lifestyle, economic stability, diversity abounds, and tropical weather.

Born entrepreneur, Marla transformed a perceived problem into a business opportunity. When she needed to travel, she found it difficult to find suitable accommodations for her four dogs. As a result, in 2010 she launched VIP Vacation Kennels, a safe, spacious, cage free place, where fun is the order of the day, and pets get a real vacation when parents are away. There has never been a single day that VIP Vacation Kennels has not hosted guests in the ten years since the company started.

Five years later, Marla opened Pets Go Global, a certified IPATA (International Pet and Animal Transport Association) pet relocation company – relocating pets, with fur, feathers and scales, to and from anywhere around the globe. Following the success of these two companies, Marla opened VIP Vacation Kitty Kennels in 2019, providing the same vacation experience for feline guests.

For Marla, there is always a way to make things happen and this philosophy is present in all her projects. This versatility and pure love for animals has given her the credibility and strength to grow her businesses and successfully overcome difficult moments such as Covid-19. Relocating hundreds of pets during the worse months of Covid-19, when others said it can’t be done, has brought enormous pleasure to the families she worked for. Animals are her passion! There is no faking it with animals - they know who truly and honestly cares for them. Each of her employees are animal lovers, creating a unique bond with all their guests.

Pleasing her clients comes simply and naturally for Marla – just “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” (Matthew 7:12) is the way she lives her life and manages her businesses.
