Horses have always been special to me and that is what drew me to MHC and their mission of “Horses helping people”.

Originally from the East Coast, I grew up in Guilford, CT and moved to Mancos in 2014.

I have an associate degree in general studies. My work background before moving to Colorado was in accounting and payroll and as Administrative Assistant at Leila Day Nursery which was founded in 1878 and is the oldest continuing nursery school in the United States.

Summer of 1996, I worked at Yellowstone National Park at Lake Lodge and loved hiking, animal watching and meeting so many diverse people.

My “claim to fame” is my hike descriptions written for the Colorado Mountain Club, published in Best Durango Hikes and Best Telluride Hikes.

Currently I am the circulation manager at the Mancos Public Library and the volunteer secretary at the Mancos Methodist Church. I love interacting with so many people at the library which is “the heart of Mancos”.

As Secretary for the Board, it is a great pleasure to be a part of Medicine Horse.
