I specialize in articles that focus on horses, health, and history. I follow curiosities, obsessions, and untold stories hidden beneath the surface. I strive for compelling imagery on the page with the intention of sparking a reader’s own reflection about the Horse.

Qualitative and quantitative medical studies, primary historical documents like letters and photographs, and memoir inform the frame of my equine writing.
I facilitate courses on the role of the horse on the page. I introduce students to memoirs about the ways horses heal the physical bodies, the emotional spirit, and how the horse can be our mirror on the page.

And D’arcy, my forever horse continues to teach me how to dig deep into the well of courage inside me.
