I was born horse crazy and lucky enough to have a pony, Happy, arrived in my life when I was eight . In high school, I met my first great equine mentor, Mrs. White, an incredible horse woman who bred Appaloosas and took me under her wing. I went on to ride on a collegiate team at Hollins University and on graduation worked professionally as trainer and instructor. In the 90s, with two small boys, I pulled away from horses professionally to teach elementary school for a few years but horses called me back and I returned to training and teaching in 2007, when I accepted a position at Sweet Briar College as an instructor and went on to coach at SBC for over a decade, specializing in hunter field riding, Natural Horsemanship, and Equine Facilitated Leadership. In 2018, I completed the Epala® apprenticeship program, with Dr. Juli Lynch and began my journey with Equine Partnering.
