Meet Our Team

Lauren Brockway

Lauren Brockway

Head Trainer/Manager

Lauren had a passion for animals since she can remember. There was never a time growing up where her family did not have multiple dogs. She aquired her first personal dog during college, Harley (pictured far right). He lived in her pet friendly dorm going everywhere with her, even to classes. Often accompanying Lauren to the barn and for trail rides.

After Lauren got married, her and her husband rescued a second dog, Wesson (3rd from right). Wesson was a young exhuberent male with some pretty intense leash reactivity. This was the jumpstart to Laurens career. Learning how to better communicate with Wesson to give him the support and guidance he needed made their relationship blossom catapulting  Lauren to her calling of helping others build that same bond.

Not too long after starting her career in pet dog training, Lauren rescued Blue (2nd from right). Blue was almost feral. Terrified of the world and humans. Lauren took Blue in and helped her to be comfortable in her skin and to navigate this human world. Over the years Blue made incredible strides really sparking a passion and interest for Lauren with dogs like Blue. These kind, shy, souls are still some of Lauren’s favorite dogs to train to this day. 

Lauren has been a head trainer and manager for a previous dog training company for 10+ years. Gaining loads of expierence in training pet dog obedience and mild to extreame behavior modification. Often utilizing out of the box thinking to help her clients and dogs find solutions that work for them as individuals.

In the past couple years, Lauren has developed a very strong interest in dog sports, primaraly competitive agility and conformation. Mainly with her three youngest dogs Amble (4th from the right),  Binky (in arms), and her newest addition Eden (not pictured).

Bringing passion, expierence and a variety of skillsets to the table we are privledged to have Lauren on our team at Golden Compass.

Kayla Ebrahimnejad

Kayla Ebrahimnejad

Trainer

Born and raised in the countryside of Northern Virginia, Kayla has always had a passion for animals. She grew up riding horses and working at her local barn and was always surrounded by some sort of fury creature. While attending UNCW and pursuing a career in physical therapy, she filled her free time with fostering puppies since she could not have one of her own. After graduating, she enjoyed her job but was always drawn back to animals, dogs specifically. Dog training was always something in the back of her mind, but she wasn’t sure the steps to take to get there. Fast forward a few years, she happened to get connected with a well-known local company where she gained a lot of experience in training all different kinds of dogs and people! She adds a bubbly, outgoing personality to our awesome group and we are excited to have her join our team!
