About Me
horse connection

My story and path towards becoming a holistic equine health practitioner has not been a straight line.  Horses were a part of my past and then my path deviated towards becoming an artist.

Even with the detour, I always knew and intended for my life to be about making horses lives better before my time is up on this planet.

I grew up in Colorado until I was about 16 and then I began a rebellious stint of self-discovery, bouncing from place to place.  I called Albuquerque, NM home for around 8 years but also lay my head in Tucson, AZ, Henderson, NV, Hollywood, CA, Mililani, HI, and most recently, Seattle, WA for around 8 years as well.

Seattle is where I began to embrace myself the most.  It was there that I developed my unique art and successfully operated my own business selling it at the world famous Pike Place Market.  I was a one woman show and I learned, to be successful, all I had to do was do exactly what I wanted!

And that is why I've come back to the horses.  Before leaving Seattle, I was eager to put all of my focus on educating myself about their bodies and the best ways to help keep them aligned, so I began with an online class taught by Sara Stenson. It was a great class and the perfect foundation for me!  After I arrived back home in Colorado I took a hands on course taught by Tracy Vroom and Megan Steele at Rocky Mountain School of Animal Acupressure and Massage and I couldn't have been happier that I did!  I am continuing to educate myself in all the various modalities that interest me as well as learning from  a variety of experts throughout the world of  holistic horse care.

Helping and connecting with them is what I want, it is a deep seeded devotion that you can probably relate to.  "Horse" was my first word and I was not raised with them, I didn't get my first one until I was 11, and I have often described myself as a horse in woman's clothing.

 I am currently residing on the Western Slope of Colorado in the charming town of Paonia. 

I grew up not too far from here in another charming little farm town, Palisade, and that is where my life with horses began.  Living back in the area as an adult now has been more satisfying than I expected.  I spend a lot of time hiking with family in the expansive variety of trails and breathtaking landscapes that I definitely overlooked when I lived here as a child.  I enjoy the pace of life here.  Colorado has always been home and I look forward to turning new clients into old friends right back here where I started from!
