She has travelled and lived all over the world, and has been relocating her own pets with the help of companies like Ferndale for the last 20 years from Dubai, London, Malaysia, USA and France.

I came to Hong Kong in 1972 as a young girl completed my education here and have made Hong Kong my home. Having always had a love of animals I brought lots of waifs and strays home all through my childhood much to my parents dismay! I worked as a veterinary nurse and then practice manager for over 10 years.
it is such a pleasure being able to help ensure pets are not left behind and have the correct documentation to travel. Over 20 years at Ferndale’s I have meet some of the most amazing animals and people! I hold a diploma in Animal Husbandry, am a qualified Pet Nutrition consultant and hold a certificate in Health and Social Care.
Carmen came to us after closing her doggie cafe in 2010 in Wanchai to move to Sai Kung with her family. She has wealth of experience and manages all aspects of the shipping process at Ferndale from the first contact and quote to the happy arrival of each pet in its new country, whether here in Hong Kong or elsewhere in the world. While away from the busy Ferndale office, Carmen enjoys spending time with her husband and young son, and their large four legged family of four dogs and a cat, as well as her love of cooking & cake decorating.
