Justine will be our guest speaker July 20th, 2015. Justine was born and raised in South Florida and first fell in love with Equine-Assisted Therapies when she volunteered during high school and college. She attended horse camp during summers as a child and took lessons at a young age. After college, Justine was asked to join the Board of Directors.
Justine served as the Board Secretary for almost three years when she made the decision to leave mortgage banking and sales to join the exciting world of riding and horses. At Equine-Assisted Therapies, Justine works on the special events, fundraising and community development areas. She said she is thrilled to wear boots to work every day instead of high heels and use her marketing & sales background in the non-profit world.
