Jess was born and raised in Littleton, CO. She moved to Fort Collins in 2008 to study Journalism and Health and Exercise Science at CSU. She has always had a passion for horses and grew up doing chores in exchange for lessons and horse camps. During college she didn’t get much saddle time, but as soon as she graduated she quickly found a side job exercising horses. In 2014 she was finally able to make her lifelong dream of owning a horse of her own a reality. Jess has a deep love for all animals and was heavily involved in dog rescue before joining the Happy Horse team. Her and her husband boast a very full house of five dogs, 3 cats and a horse! Jess has a strong background in communication as well as restaurant and business management. She is very excited to merge one of her passions with her work and join the Happy Horse Team!
