If everything gets too busy Marlen O’Donnell steps back from her work as a social worker and steps in to help. According to her husband Johny, (who has a consulting  business and helps Tasman Tours with marketing) – Marlen is the “human manifestation of happiness” but she’s far too modest to claim that one. Instead she describes herself as someone with a passion for people, perhaps a quality she inherited from her parents (yes it really is a family business!).
Marlen is a creative type with a keen interest in art. Her preferred method of transport appears to be on foot as she loves exploring new places by running around the neighbourhoods.
For a young woman, Marlen already has many travelling destinations ticked off, with Tasman remaining a favourite! Marlen is a raving advocate of the bustling fun culture of Nelson and Takaka and will also always have a soft spot for the Abel Tasman.
