Create your herd: Developing a career through lived experiences

Research output: Chapter in Book/Entry/PoemChapter


It was my early childhood experiences with animals that attributed to my professional career trajectory. I grew up in a home working through a contemptuous divorce; in memories, at the barn was where I felt safe. Horses taught me empathy and compassion. They taught me that falling off, though painful, was an opportunity to get back on; they brought out my confidence and taught me trust.
