Shelley has enjoyed the past several years as Barn Manager at Willaway Farm. She feels incredibly fortunate to see her horse every day while caring for our herd, including the thereaputic riding horses.
Shelley works closely with Susan Allan providing workshops and trainings in Equine Facilitated Learning. She has attended a number of Equine Facilitated Learning workshops, including the FEEL (Facilitated Equine Experiential Learning) Partners in Connection course.
Shelley has her degree in physical education from Brock University. She has spent much of her life involved in education. She was a supply teacher at the high school level and has worked in daycare both in a formal daycare setting and in her own home daycare.
Much of what Shelley learned raising her own two daughters and in daycare carries over to working with horses. Gentleness, patience and a calm disposition helps to achieve results with both horse and human. Although horses were not a part of her life from youth they have become the focus of her life.
