My First Chapter
How a Horse-Crazy, ex-Navy Brat Became a Kentucky Business Ninja
In short, not quickly. 🙂
Born in Washington State, I lived in Rhode Island, the Philippines, and California all before the age of 9. My father was a Navy commander (think Top Gun) and our family traveled with him until he retired from military service.
My most interesting experience was when Mount Pinatubo awoke from 600 years of slumber, spewing tons of ash onto the Philippine Island of Luzon. I remember everything buried in a foot of grey “snow” as we were evacuated via helicopter and the aircraft carrier USS Lincoln!
When my father switched careers and became a commercial pilot, we settled in Kentucky. Although I miss the ocean, the Bluegrass region is well suited for my horse obsession.
After earning my BA in Equine Management at Midway University, the next step was (I realize now) earning my masters in life.
From Vet Assistant at a small animal clinic to receptionist, from a farm manager to guest service assistant, my roles were as interesting as they were diverse.
Then one day, I had a light-bulb moment that changed everything. I realized my dreams would never become reality as long as I was working for someone else. So I took a deep breath, put in my notice, and launched out on my own.
That all sounds pretty serious, but I also love cars, comic book heroes, and fairy tales. (Disney Rocks!!) So if you put all of this mess together, you get: Blue Biz Ninja!!!
A Peek Behind The Curtain
I was born loving animals and understanding them has always come naturally for me. It’s exhilarating to help them discover their full potential, and then share in that energy as they spread their wings and fly.
Over time, I’ve come to see the same hopes and dreams in myself and others. The challenge for all of us is to identify what’s holding us back, and then find the best way to resolve it. This is why I started my business: I love working with my clients to find that moment when a concept or idea clicks, and they own it!

The big white face is Em; she showed me the importance of being outside and how to be a better rider. The cooperative one is Marvin, always up for any shenanigan and still going strong!
The kayak dog is Rourke; I’ll just say when you’ve got time to kill, ask about our 9 years together and what he’s taught me.
The brown mare is Lucy, who hasn’t quite shown what she’s capable of doing yet but enjoys being a pasture puff for now. 🙂
The pudgy puppy picture is my newest partner in crime. Jasper is constantly amazing me with how smart he is and as you can tell, he’s a ham for the camera!
