Having a first degree in Journalism (Ohio University) and a second in Animal Science (University of Florida), I’ve devoted my entire professional career to animals in one capacity, or another. Since 1994, I have been professionally employed in the equine industry in many varying positions.
In my past position as a University of Florida/IFAS Marion County Extension Agent, I solely conceptualized, marketed and developed water quality/natural resources education/outreach program for the equine industry. Articles were routinely written betwen 2010-2016 for trade journals, such as Florida Horse and The Horse Capital Digest, to educate and enhance individual farm consultations.
When not currently riding or playing with my pets, I have an equine business consulting http://www.kismetbiz.site/ service that improves everything from the books to the barn, improving the bottom line, marketing and the facility. I have recently started my own blog, https://petsrule.blog/. Please join! Also, check out my Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/petsrule.blog/ . My goal is to educate about how much true happiness and pure love my animals have brought me (and continue to bring), and enlighten those on how very much adoption will change their life, as it has changed mine.
