Melissa was born with a great passion for horses emerging early in her childhood. With relentless training, determination, and commitment, Melissa fearlessly earned numerous high-tier awards, becoming an esteemed and well-decorated equestrian. Her passion for horses transformed into a love for training others and she continued a professional career working for elite trainers in California and Washington. In 2006 Melissa began developing a career in the corporate world. This move was the first step in a launching a very successful career in retail merchandising. She would work with companies such as NIKE, adidas, Dick's Sporting Goods, Sports Authority and FinishLine. This work would take her around the country and all the while remaining involved with horses.
Melissa met Kate in 2013 and began working at B. Kate Stables as an instructor and rider. Early on they realized they both were drawn to using horses to teach humans about communicating clearly and leading effectively. In 2014 they launched Axiom Equine.
Melissa’s openness to new ideas and easy compatibility with many kinds of people fueled a collaboration with therapists, educators, entrepreneurs and business executives to develop a curriculum to facilitate an experience of leadership for corporate clients. Melissa is the glue that connects all of us here at Axiom Equine. She brings organizational expertise, attention to detail and thoughtful communication to our organization and to our clients.
