Date (approx) you started working at High Hopes
What prompted your interest in Therapeutic Horsemanship?
I fell in love with the concept of therapeutic horsemanship after owning my own horses and learning how powerful their effects can be on humans. I also love to teach and continue to help others grow!
Where did you work before High Hopes?
I worked as the student barn manager at the SUNY Cobleskill Equestrian Center throughout college. I then worked as a veterinary technician for the Equine Clinic at Oakencroft.
Please describe two or three (max. five) different things you love about High Hopes.
I love getting to know all of the volunteers at High Hopes. It is so fun to small talk with them throughout their time volunteering and learning more about them. I also love teaching! It is so fun to plan fun lessons around what my riders enjoy best.
Brief description of your life outside of High Hopes
I am a transplant from upstate NY and I enjoys hiking and love TACOS! I have a miniature donkey named Otis, a goat named Matt, and a sheep named Daisy. They are all best friends!
