Mentor & Ranch Hands Coordinator • I am a wife, mother and photographer. My love for horses and teens drew me to Bright Side Youth Ranch. I prayed God would show me a way that I can take what I love and use it to help others. I was excited to learn how I could teach love, hope and to trust God with a horse. After coming to Bright Side, mine and my daughter’s lives have been forever changed.
Mentor • I discovered it through an online search and realized this place is seeks to help children who are going through similar hurts and struggles that I faced in my own childhood. I immediately knew God was going to use me here and my story to give someone hope and a bright future. I am humbled and amazed at what God is doing here every time I step foot on the property.
Mentor • I am a perfectly imperfect child of God. I have this unconditional, overwhelming love for our children and a passion to show them that they are deserving of love, but more importantly have the unconditional love of Jesus. Oh! I love to laugh and when I do it is hysterically LOUD.
Mentor & Round Up Coordinator • I’m a Jesus-loving wife, mom and all things pumpkin spice enthusiast. I have an education background in child development and I love that God is allowing me to use those skills to help Bright Side impact the next generation. I am a firm believer in the child-horse relationship and I know from experience the impact that these incredible animals can have on one’s life during times of crisis.
