In 1998 she was introduced the the Lyons methods of training and went on the incorporate these successful techniques into her training program.
In 2005 she moved to Colorado to realize her dream of training with one of the greatest horseman, and to become a John and Josh Lyons certified horse trainer. "Working with Josh and John was an amazing experience. Josh taught me many things, most importantly about how I saw myself as a trainer. He taught me how to think and see things more clearly, being able to read every movement of the horses body and how it works together. I have learned a lot from great people over the years, but Josh Lyons was the one that brought me to what I am today. I am very grateful to have had the experience of training with the Lyons Legacy!"
