Growing up on a farm taught her not only how animals can be beneficial for working use, but also how they become part of your family. That is why she chose this field for a career path. Seeing the different bonds made between an owner and their best friend, is the most rewarding part of her job. She spends the majority of her spare time with her horse, Gunner.
