Cara grew up in the country just outside of Santa Fe where she spent her days after school riding and grooming horses. In college, Cara studied ceramics, Spanish and sustainable agriculture. She then traveled and volunteered around the world on farms and intentional living communities, working with horses, gardening, and helping out with natural building projects. In 2015, Cara moved to the Big Island of Hawaii to work as a horticultural therapy field guide for 2 years before moving to Durango to then become a Wilderness Therapy field guide.
Cara has a deep appreciation and love for nature and our fellow four legged friends. She enjoys spending her free time rock climbing, doing yoga and pottery, gardening, riding horses, and going on adventures with friends.
