Meet the Owners
Lisa grew up in the Silver Spring/Ashton area and now lives close to her family in Southern Maryland. She has over 20 years experience in the kennel business and has worked at four different kennels, including one which was owned and operated by a charter board member of The American Boarding Kennel Association (ABKA). Before purchasing Interlude Pet Resort & Spa, Lisa ran a successful pet sitting business from her home. Lisa enjoys horseback riding, skiing, country music and camping.
Leslie J. Berg
Leslie grew up in Columbia, MD and has always had a passion for all living creatures, including exotic ones. Before buying Interlude, Leslie worked at one kennel for nearly ten years and spent four years working in the medical field with small animals. During that time, she attended the Veterinary Continuing Education Expo in 1997 and has been certified by the American Dental Association for Veterinary Technicians in dental procedures. When she left the veterinary field to become a kennel operator, she was the head surgery technician, pre- and post-operative nurse, and assistant hospital manager. Leslie enjoys wildlife & animal photography, many genres of music (especially Van Morrison), reading a good book & a lot of short visits to NYC.
Both Lisa and Leslie have taken and passed the Pet Care Technician test and the Advanced Pet Care Technician test.
We employ loving, knowledgeable individuals who share our passion for top-notch pet care. All full-time animal handlers working at Interlude are required to take and pass the Pet Care Technician level one continuing education, certification, seminars and opportunities at hand via Interlude Pet Resort.
