“I’ve heard it said, our childhood never leaves us. Good, bad, or otherwise. So, being raised on the shores of Georgian Bay, Canada, surrounded by large granite rock and windswept pine trees has informed every step of my life’s path in a ‘hero’s journey’ kind of way. I have learned to sink deeply into the natural world and its capacity to heal myself and others. My journey as healer/counsellor/coach/teacher for 35 years has guided me to the magic of horses as four-legged helpers. Intertwining my helping spirit with natures’ gifts and horse love will lead me into my twilight years, and beyond, remembered by how I lead others to their very nature.”
