Certified Equine Massage Therapist
As a child growing up in the Lower Mainland of BC, I fell in love with horseback riding and began competing in hunter/jumper events. In my teens, I was introduced to natural horsemanship methods through Jonathan Field, and my passion for working with horses flourished. I faced new challenges when I started working with a spirited colt named Ace, who changed my whole perspective on how I worked with horses.
After earning a Bachelor's Degree in Arts and Education with a major in Curriculum Design, I applied my knowledge to various industries. When I moved to Alberta, I immersed myself in the equine industry by working at ranches, auction yards, reining and hunter jumper barns, and learning from every instructor, trainer, clinician, and equine health professional I could. Through these experiences, I developed a unique program that helps horses and their owners strengthen their relationships, no matter the discipline or modality.
In 2016, I became a Certified Equine Massage Therapist through Equine Rehab, to deepen my understanding of horses' biomechanics and how their health impacts their willingness to work with humans. This led to the creation of Vibe Equine Wellness, where my skills were put to work with horses and people from various backgrounds and disciplines all over the country (including Ontario, BC, and Alberta) to help them achieve their goals and build stronger connections.
Thanks for reading my story, I'm looking forward to connecting with you and your horses!
