MS, TF-EAP, EP
I am originally from Washington State and have worked with horses for over 20 years in both recreational riding and training using Natural Horsemanship principles. In 2008 I received my Bachelors Degree in Marriage, Family, and Human Development from Brigham Young University and in 2014, a Masters Degree in Family, Consumer, and Human Development from Utah State University with an emphasis in Family Relations. In 2012, I transitioned from academia to Arivaca Boys Ranch in Southern Arizona where I served five years as the Equine Director developing their residential equine therapy program. In 2015, I was introduced to Natural Lifemanship and had my first intensive training. NL gave me language and framework to the work I had been doing and my effectiveness as an Equine Professional multiplied. I have been using the NL model in practice since 2015 and am passionate about its principles and effectiveness. I am available to contract for TF-EAP sessions for therapists in the Austin area.
