What do you put on your pizza?  Any pizza is good pizza in my opinion! I will eat just about any kind of pizza from pepperoni to BBQ to white pizza with veggies. Just NO onions.  


In your lifetime, what is your most interesting horse experience?  I can not think of one isolated experience. In general, what I find more interesting about horses is how they communicate with each other and us, and how they affect us. Sometimes you won’t even know how much they have affected you or changed your life for a long time and then it hits you. I can sit with my horse and just be with them or watch horses interact for hours and never get bored.


Tell us one of your favorite MH stories.  The stories I hear regularly about how truly life changing working with the horses is for the people we serve is very impactful for me; it lights a fire inside me to want to do everything I can to ensure we help as many people as possible have that experience.


How would your 10-year-old self react to what you’re doing in life now? She wouldn’t believe the opportunities I’ve had, as they have been beyond her wildest dreams. She would tell me not to change a thing as she would be excited to get here and do what I am doing now.


If you could be any animal/creature real or imagined, what would you be and why? A dragon because they can fly and are fierce but magical.


What do you like to do when you’re not working?

I have 1 ½ horses, 2 huskies, and most importantly, a husband and an almost grown and flown daughter. This crew keeps me pretty busy outside of Medicine Horse. You’ll find me spending quality time with my family, riding and caring for my horses, being show mom/groom for my daughter at horse shows, running with my huskies, reading and just pursuing knowledge in general (as I am an avid, lifelong learner), traveling, downhill skiing, cross-country skiing/skijoring with my huskies, doing yoga or other fitness activities, hiking, biking, watching sunsets, and enjoying good food and live music with my husband, and occasionally cooking.
