I have always loved and wanted to work with horses, ever since I was a small child. At that time, veterinary care was the only mode of healing for animals that I was familiar with, so that is where I originally set my sights when it came time to think about careers.
Early in my marriage, I worked in a veterinary clinic doing general cleaning chores, animal care and feeding, even occasionally assisting in surgery. I loved the job and was preparing to begin classes to become a veterinary technician when I learned I was pregnant with my first child and both job and school were put on hold. After she was born, I began classes... and life threw another curve ball when two foster children came into our lives for a year before returning to their mother. Life was quite different after that, sooo...
After several years, three more children of my own, and a divorce later, I discovered alternative healing arts and realized there are many different ways to encourage and support health and wellness. As I went through my own healing process, I began working with people and became a holistic health care practitioner as a certified medical intuitive, life coach, counselor, intuitive massage therapist ( which I have done since I was a teenager) and fully ordained minister. It is work that I enjoy, yet I felt a piece was missing.
When I learned of ECST and EMFT that piece fell into place and ignited a deep passion I had not felt in a long time. Life has brought me full circle and home to where my whole heart is -- working with horses.
