paw Team Spotlight
Marina Tal
Medical Director

Dr. Tal graduated from Wesleyan University in Middletown, CT, with a degree in Neuroscience and Behavior. Although her family had encouraged her to enter the field of human medicine, her heart was always with the animals and she has never looked back. Dr. Tal graduated from Tufts University School of Veterinary Medicine in 2001 and came to work in Vermont. She joined VCA Brown Animal Hospital in June, 2001, and became the medical director in 2004.

When not working, Dr. Tal enjoys spending time with her husband, two sons, and dog, Emma. Dr. Tal loves traveling and being out on the water or in the mountains. She hopes to someday find a little more free time to get back to playing the piano.

Brandon Dutkiewicz
CVT Credentialed Veterinary Technician Supervisor
In 2015, Brandon started at VCA Brown as a kennel attendant and quickly rotated positions like reception and thereafter as a Veterinary Assistant where he discovered that is where he wanted to be. He continued that path and went to school in 2018 while working full-time with VCA Brown. Graduating in 2020, Brandon then tested and received his state license and continued working with VCA as a full-time Certified Veterinary Technician. Brandon has a passion for general practice and client education. In the practice, he respects and loves anesthesia, and enjoys working with our doctors when some of the more intriguing cases come in. A couple of his achievements include taking over as Veterinary Technician Supervisor in early 2022 and having an article published in a veterinary medical journal. Brandon plans to continue his career at VCA Brown with a specialty in general practice for small animals. Outside of work, he loves spending time with his wife and two kids, and continuing to tinker on his vintage motorcycle.
