EAGALA Program Director
From an early age, Alana knew that there was something special about her relationship with horses. While learning how to ride in New York, she was exposed to equine therapy through a local organization, HorseAbility. She actively volunteered by assisting during lessons, training volunteers, and caring for the horses. Alana began to expose her non-horsey friends to the volunteer opportunity, sharing her passion for horses.
Alana attended the University of Arizona and received a Bachelors in Psychology. She assisted in launching a vocational program catered to adults with developmental disabilities at HorseAbility. Alana believes that horses are powerful beings, in that their communication is clear, honest and nonjudgmental. Alana wants to expose their beauty and bridge the gap between the ‘real world’ and ‘horse world.’
Upon meeting Franky and visiting Kachina’s Place, Alana grew inspired and elated to join the team. Alana will lead our EAGALA and on the ground programming.
