After many years in the local media, I'm ecstatic to be working at the LTRA.  Through the years, this Association and it's volunteers have proven to be generous in heart and soul.  And those who use this facility are an inspiration to us all.  I invite you to stop by and visit us anytime. Pet a horse, see our new arena, or simply thank a volunteer.  See who we are, what we do, and who we help. Heck, I'll even buy you a coffee!

I became interested in therapeutic riding when I volunteered for LTRA in my Grade 12 year. I knew it was the perfect job for me. I started with the organization in September 2012 as their able body coach while in the process of becoming CanTRA certified. I became the Program Coordinator in May 2013 and was officially certified as a therapeutic coach September 2013. I am also certified as a Western Riding Level 1 and 2.

After many years of experience in the private business sector, I have been employed at LTRA since August of 2004, a non profit charitable organization. Working in this environment has been very gratifying and has shown me how this unique program can be so beneficial for all our valued clients.
