Since I can remember, I had a horse by my side on the farm. My passion for animals lead to my studies at Guelph University, where I completed an animal science BSc. and a MSc. in dairy nutrition. During my time at Guelph I also worked towards my long-term dream of becoming a therapeutic riding instructor through Cantra. After volunteering for many hours at Sunrise Therapeutic Riding and Learning Center I became one of their instructors. I moved back home and my husband and I decided that farming was the way of life for us. Today, I work for Agribrands Purina as sales manager and animal nutritionist. Building and now opening Para-Mount Equestrian Center is a dream come true!
