  1. “ I have always loved caring for, helping, and playing with children, and horses have been my passion since I was a child. Children with special needs have a special place in my heart, thus, I became a pediatric Occupational Therapist.  I  have fulfilled my dream of combining my profession and passion.  I see firsthand how these wonderful and magical animals form partnerships with the entire team and help children reach their therapy goals.  Hippotherapy can truly make a difference in all activities of daily living which is the essence of occupational therapy!!!”
