About Me

Even though my grandfather trained horses in England, my mother grew up on a farm in Canada, where horses were essential, and my father had me at the racetrack every weekend and holiday as a child…my  love for horses consisted of hopping on, with no fear or training, and enjoying any wild ride on which I was taken.

Life and an opera career took me in another direction for many years, until, one day, I had my “Field Of Dreams moment” and horses came back into my life in ways I never could have imagined. The Universe presented me with a “crash course in everything horse” and this “novice” quickly became experienced.  This journey is chronicled in my blog at www.confessionsofanovicehorsewoman.com.

In addition to participating in continuing education from the Learning Animals Center in Italy, founded by the authors of Equus Lost, Francesco De Giorgio and Jose De Giorgio-School, the following describes some of my experience:

  • Bachelor and Masters of Music Degrees  from Northwestern University
  • Bachelor of Divinity
  • Ordained Minister in the Universal Brotherhood Movement
  • Certified Facilitator in Family Constellations in Silence
  • Certified Reiki Master

But, mostly, I am simply a human, dedicated to making a difference in the lives of horses and donkeys and to bringing equines and humans together  for mutual learning, joy and healing,
