About Colleen Rolland

<?php echo Colleen Rolland

Colleen Rolland

Colleen has always had an affinity with animals; even from a young age, she was actively nurturing the many pets that were part of her rural background.   Whether it was a cat, dog, baby racoon, or orphaned baby skunks, animals were always part of her family. However, it was the two mares that lived on the property next door that sparked her love of horses – which would become a lifelong passion. After a successful 23 year career in an executive senior management position, honing her “people” skills with both colleagues and clients, Colleen made a decision to pursue a different career path – one that would enable her to combine her two passions in a very unique manner and help others at the same time.
