Having served twenty-five years as a firefighter and Lieutenant with Boulder Fire Rescue, Laurie knows first-hand just how much of a beating the body can take. With an understanding of the importance of regular bodywork during her long and extremely physically demanding career, Laurie realized that it must be just as critical in maintaining a horse’s health since their bodies also undergo a great deal of daily wear and tear.
This realization led Laurie to became a successful certified equine sports massage therapist (CSMT) in 2002. Ten years later, she heard about The Masterson Method and was immediately intrigued and hooked. With a sincere and heartfelt desire to help improve the health of horses of all ages, Laurie was eager and excited to take her equine massage skills to a much deeper level and continued learning all she could and is now a proud Certified Masterson Method Practitioner.
A native of Colorado, Laurie grew up riding horses both for fun and competition. Today she owns a quarter horse, “Keeper”, a Mustang, “Long Sox” and an Arabian, “Shamoun”, that she enjoys for trail riding. In addition to her beloved horses, she lives on a quiet ranch nestled near the foothills of the Rockies in Berthoud, Colorado with her three dogs, Cowboy, Cooper and Dalilah.
Laurie is a firm believer in The Masterson Method and sees time and time again how it not only releases physical tension but also the stress and emotional tension that so many horses experience. By being in tune with the unique responses of each individual horse, Laurie creates a beautiful trust and special bond with every horse she works with. Her many loyal clients are often astonished when their horses completely relax and are able to communicate with her in ways they’ve never seen during this amazing interactive process.
Laurie is passionate about improving your horse’s overall physical and emotional health and looks forward to meeting you and your equine friends.
