As she continued in her career, Ms. D became a modeling and personal development instructor, teaching young girls manners, etiquette, and poise. She quickly learned that she loved mentoring, and soon wanted to find a way to be with kids and horses at the same time. Ms. D fulfilled this dream in 2000, when she joined Hunkapi’s team as an PATH Certified Instructional Specialist. Being a part of Hunkapi’s staff has given Ms. D such an amazing opportunity to share her knowledge of how a horse can change a life. Her favorite part is helping children learn to overcome fear and learn to trust, while watching our herd of horses adjust to each child’s need. Ms. D shares that being mindful, present and aware really enables us the full benefit of being with our horses. When Ms. D is not teaching at Hunkapi, she can be found anywhere outdoors; She enjoys biking, adventure hiking, nature and gardening!
