Horses have been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. Any chance I had to ride, groom or smell a horse, I took it! My first job was pen checking on horseback for a local cattle feedlot and it was honestly one of the best first jobs I could have had, next to working with animals big and small at the veterinary clinic. It has always been a dream of mine to one day unite my passion with an immensely rewarding career.
I am a Certified Equine Remedial Therapist. Recently graduated with honors, from the Canadian Equine Therapy Institute (CETI), and certified in advanced massage, stretching, osteopathy, acupuncture, nutrition, biomechanics, herbology and homeopathy.
My journey started after my horse, 2Bar, sustained a severe laceration to his front pastern from a barbed-wire fence. The next couple of weeks would be life-altering as his condition deteriorated and I was given a 0% chance for recovery. Every cell in my body refused to believe that there was nothing more that could be done for him. I searched tirelessly for an answer, read countless articles and case studies on tendon injuries and rehabilitation techniques and I cried...a lot. Finally, when it seemed as though I was faced with that devastating moment that so many owners find themselves in at some point, I fell to my knees and prayed for a miracle to save us both. With every ounce of determination and the help of family, friends and an amazing Veterinary team, 2Bar and I are riding together again. Click the button below to read more about our story.
It was through his trauma that I found my passion for healing and my calling to rebuild myself and my career.
