💁 That's Mrs. Business-owning, Barrel Racing, Massage Therapist, Entrepreneur... to you... And I'm here the change the game on equine therapy.

Hmmm... Where do I even begin to tell my story? Like most barrel racers, I grew up in the saddle learning the basics of horsemanship and pushing the limits of how much glitter was actually acceptable in public. I blessed to have some really nice horses growing up that took me every place I dreamed about. I set goals and smashed them. I learned the care, maintenance, training, and time that goes into the creation of a successful horse. I also learned how quickly injuries can sideline and end the career of a horse or rider.

In high school I saw my first death from EPM, the horse was owned by a neighbor and I will never forget it. I've lost horses of my own too. If you're in the industry long enough, you'll meet untimely deaths, career-ending injuries, and situations you wish went differently. I feel like the tragedies we endure, help mold us into better caregivers. You can spend time drowning yourself in what ifs, or you can grow from that unfortunate and help others along their path....

The Heart, The Soul, The Experience... This is where Superior Therapy LLC was born. I've been that barrel racer icing a leg at 2am knowing I'd have to scratch the next day. I've been that owner in the waiting room praying one through surgery. I'm that breeder who lost a stallion too young to a fractured hock. We ask so much of these great animals, and I wanted to be able to give back to them.

I'm a 14-year massage therapist for people, and truth be told.... A therapist mind can pretty much be used the same from creature to creature. You see, what we see in the structure of the muscle tissue... The balance (or lack of) and the ideal we are working towards. I was blessed to witness the healing capabilities of cold lasers in 1997 and have always had them around every since. I'm pretty simple and I don't fall for false advertising very often, so if I'm using something... I've seen results with it. Transparency is always my goal. I like answering questions, explaining what I do, and being a "voice" for our equine athletes. You're never too old or too good to learn.... The health field is always evolving, better get on the train or you'll get left behind.

Winning is a great feeling... Let's face it, we've all got that eye on the prize every time we saddle up.... But I've enjoyed helping others chase their dreams too. I live for being a part of the comeback stories, the successes of others, and the education of our industry.

Who am I? Do you really want to know? I'm a wife, a barrel racer... And I'm a person trying to make a positive impact on an industry I love. Chase your dreams, people.... You never know where they might lead you... 💜💜💜
