Since I was a child, something about the written word has always gripped me, and when I wasn’t at the barn, you could find me at the library. Animals have always been a major aspect of my life, and I was deemed “horse crazy” as a child. Having ridden horses since I was ten, I bought my first horse (an ex-racehorse) just before my senior year of college.
I attended Westfield State University where I majored in English with a concentration in writing (and, being determined to also pursue my love of music, double majored in music performance on the flute). While in college I also completed the 200-hour equine massage course at the Bancroft School of Massage, and am now a certified equine massage therapist. After graduating college I worked as a veterinary receptionist where I gained a wealth of knowledge on small animal health and care, and I have been able to put this knowledge to use in my writing. Today I put that experience and knowledge to use in writing accurate content on both equine and pet topics.
