Adams believes that all families, regardless of socioeconomic status deserve access to high-quality therapeutic services. Her background as an educator, coach, dancer, and musician, combined with her love for horses, provides the perfect knowledge base for her work in the area of Equine Facilitated Learning. As a board-certified Equine Interaction Professional in Education, her priorities are placed on an individualized and goal-oriented educational approach.
