Overview

Hi, I am a mother of four. My young adults are all in business for themselves; 3 in the area and one in MB. No grandbabies yet. I was farm raised in the Okanagan, graduated and traveled most of Canada. I have experience in animal health, farm management, and now have an alternative health clinic in Kelowna, BC. I am a Registered Holistic Nutrition Practitioner, a Certified Live Blood Analyst, Equine Coach, Equine Rehabilitation Specialist. I love gardening, and spending time outdoors on the farm. Rich is a handyman, with crane and truck operating experience. Rich and I met in 2010, after both of us settled past mistakes and are now married. We wish to move out of the City area and back to a private setting. We hope to move our on line business back home and combine working with horses and people in one location. Living as self-sufficient as possible, we look forward to like-minded people to share the same goals.

Experience

Certified in Farm management, Certified Equine coach, Registered Holistic Nutrition Practitioner, Microscopy Practitioner, Equine Behavior specialist, equine nutrition, canine nutrition, office management, clinic owner/operator. Rich holds a class one with a crane license, handyman, farmhand, business management, EFT Practitioner.

Partner(s)

My husband and I work together, as he is an all 'round handyman, carpenter, crane operator, truck driver, EFT Practitioner

Farm Vision

We have 2 horses, 3 calves, chickens, rabbits. We incorporate wholistic living, eating, educating with our alternative health clinic (moving to be mostly all online). We are moving our businesses into one. Working from home is what we'd like to go back to doing. I enjoy riding/training my own horses and having selective people come in with problem horses for short term training. We also would like to continue to facilitate therapy for people with or without the horses.

Relationship with Farm Owner

Looking for an opportunity to live privately, growing what we need, and selling/trading excess. Working with others, helping others, teaching how to live naturally. We are hoping to lease or lease to purchase for the right place.
