Carly began her journey at Forward Stride as an intern in our Equine Facilitated Psychotherapy program while pursuing a degree in psychology and as many others here, she found herself staying.  As a 7 year old she began riding horses and soon convinced her parents that she was ready for the responsibility of owning her own. They have always been a huge part of her life and finding a way to bring her passion into her career was really important and Forward Stride was exactly that. Recently, she obtained her Equine Specialist Certification through PATH as she continues to explore whether or not she will return to school to become a counselor.

Three of Carly’s favorite things include her family, hiking, traveling.
