I grew up on a farm in NE Iowa where my journey with horses began. We had 4 quarter horses that I spent a lot of time with as a child and developed a lifelong love for these animals. I grew up, married and had a child of my own. My career was in healthcare and I spent 15 years working in a Mental Health Facility as a caregiver. I never forgot the horses that I loved as a child and felt called to find a path back to horses. I began volunteering for a nonprofit horse organization Chiron Inc. in 2017. Working with the horses has had a profound impact on my life, and my journey in personal development. I have also witnessed the positive impact it has had on the lives of others. Horses are natural healers, they give so much. I wanted to find a way to give back to them and that is when I discovered the Masterson Method. I took my first weekend seminar in 2018 and have practiced on our herd at Chiron. The herd at Chiron Inc. has not only benefited physically but has benefited from the connection and communication that this method offers. I will be incorporating the MMES in to our programming at Chiron Inc. to help as many horses and people as I can.
