Founder ~ Certified Equine Facilitator ~ Reiki II Practitioner
Growing up with horses, Alisha has the personal experience of how profound and meaningful a connection with one of these amazingly wonderful animals can be, and will personally attest to the fact that they not only helped shape who she is today, but have saved her life. Through personal struggles with self-image, self-confidence and addiction, horses were always her safe space due to their non-judgmental and genuinely empathetic nature. From personal horses on the home farm, to horses at the ranch where she worked as a teen in Florida, and now horses she owns and has owned as an adult, she can name every one of them and tell you what type of life lesson she learned from them.
In 2020, after several years in leadership in the corporate world, Alisha was graced with the rare opportunity to pursue her passions AND have a genuinely positive impact on others. She decided to take the plunge and start her equine assisted learning (EAL) journey with Dreamwinds/ Cartier Farms, and that’s when Transitions was officially born. Her lifelong passion became her career, and by understanding the horse human parallels, she is able to provide valuable and important feedback from the horse, for the betterment of yourself, and helps facilitate those ever important “AH HA” moments, which are imperative to unlocking your potential and removing any self-imposed road blocks.
In addition to EAL, Alisha holds certifications in ASIST and SafeTalk, and is a Reiki II practitioner with an active membership in the Canadian Reiki Association. She is happily married, and has 2 wonderful kids who also play active roles in the day to day operation of Transitions.
“With this program, my passion for horses is beautifully combined with my passion for helping others, and my broken old rescue horses have renewed purpose. That means here, everybody wins”
