"For as long as I can remember, I have adored animals. As a young child, I wanted to be near them all the time. I felt a special connection with animals, especially horses. I didn't know that what I was feeling was more than childhood affection. Deep inside me, I felt like one of them. Somehow I knew: we were the same.

When I was in 5th grade, my class was asked to make a career book. I couldn't decide if I wanted to be an actress or a veterinarian. Since what I loved most was animals, I decided that I would become a vet. However, as I gathered information about veterinary medicine, something in me -- even at that young age -- knew that I could not follow this path as a way to help animals heal. So, I followed my other dream and pursued an acting career for many years. It was during this perod of time that I discovered the path of spiritual healing and my life's work as a healer and communicator for animals."
