About

A certified Equine Massage Therapist and student in Equine Studies at the University of Guelph, I have a keen interest in equine behaviour, welfare issues, and equitation science. This site is a space to share what I’m learning and build my practice. Read my Guiding Statement for Equine Welfare here.
