Horses make me happy. I just want to return the favor. Growing up a horse trainer's daughter, horses have been a staple in my life. I started showing register quarter horses and paint horses at 7 years old. I gained valuable knowledge and experience in all species of livestock breeding, fitting and showing lambs and show pigs through the 4-H program. I have continued to train horses and compete as a professional barrel racer. My "day" job is working as a large animal veterinary technician at Countryside Large Animal Veterinary Services in Greeley, Colorado. I work alongside top veterinarians diagnosing and treating lameness in performance horses as well as show livestock of all species.
