Karen Braner

Karen joined the team at The Pet Nanny, LLC in November 2017. Even though Karen is new to the team, she has 60 years experience caring for animals. Her parents wondered where they had got Karen from because she was always rescuing animals, insects, and people.

She worked as a nurse (med-surg, ER, and psychiatric) for 30 years in Northern Virginia. Five years ago, she wanted to move out of the hustle and bustle of the D.C. area and moved to her mother’s hometown of Middlesex where she was an RN at Saluda Convalescent Center for five years. She just recently retired. Karen met Dana in Bible Study and thought that taking care of pets would be a wonderful way to work with people and animals.

Karen is single, has three rescued dogs (two Beagles) and eight cats.

She is active in her church, loves to walk, ride bikes, work out at the Wellness Center and spend time with her brothers, her sister and their children.
