I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology/Human Needs from the Evergreen State College and a Master of Arts degree from Prescott College in Counseling Psychology with an emphasis in Equine Assisted Mental Health.
I co-founded a non-profit therapeutic horsemanship program in Olympia, WA, called HeartStrides Therapeutic Horsemanship, and I served as Executive Director and as one of two lead instructors for the program for five years.
I am currently taking a break from instructing and am working full time as a therapist for a mental health agency in Tacoma, WA. I will maintain my centered riding instructor status as I plan to return to instructing again at some point in the future, but at this point in time I am not taking on any new students.
