TF has loved all things animal since since childhood, but she's a horse person before all else. Growing up in Oregon, she spent years as a competitive hunter/jumper equestrian and later developed an interest in rehabilitative training. In addition to her love of horses, she's passionate about dog rescue, particularly greyhound rescue. She has a Master's degree in a writing-intensive field, and the opportunity to write about what she loves is what led her to Wide Open Pets.
