MEET OUR STAFF
Rocky grew up in King of Prussia. Many of her relatives lived in southern Chester County and encouraged her passion for horses. Rocky did not have the financial opportunity to own a horse early in life. As a result, Rocky catch-rode beyond the typical hunter-jumper discipline popular in the area. Barrel racing, foxhunting, polo and thoroughbred racing expanded her equestrian experience. She has competed in barrel racing, hunters, showjumping, and evented. In 1991, Rocky graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Equine Science. Prior to working within the veterinary field, Rocky managed the daily care of up to 60 horses. The over-exuberant canine greeter in the office is her Husky-lab mix, Dylan.
