audrey-adamson1Welcome to PATH Intl. Region 5! I am so excited that you have joined PATH Intl. in its endeavors!

In 2005, I learned about EAAT. My professor in college suggested working at my local center to meet my practicum requirements for graduation. I instantly fell in love with the way the clients and horses interacted. I facilitated a child saying his first word and I knew then that this would be my lifelong passion.

I have years of experience in non-profits and small centers but I can also help guide those of you who are from large centers. I have held a variety of positions and can shed some light on most issues. When I can’t personally get you the information you need, then I will get you touch with who can. EAAT is about working together and assisting each other as much as we enable our participants. I am honored to help lead the growing community of EAAT professionals.

If you are a PATH International member, you have access to the huge collective knowledge and experience of the whole membership. I want to encourage you to reach out to myself and the other members. I know there have been instances where information sharing has not been optimal, but please do not let past incidents discourage you from growing and reaching out to myself, PATH staff, and other members.

Here’s how to get involved:

Step One: Check your membership profile and make sure your correct e-mail is shown, so that you receive the info you need.

Step Two: Contact your state chair. These folks know resources right in your state and want to help.

Step Three: Join the Community Connections and list-serves that best fit your needs such as groups for administrators, instructors, etc.

Step Four: Get involved on Facebook. As it is a widely used tool, most regions and states have a group or page dedicated to the community and keeping members up to date.

I want to sincerely thank you for providing safe and effective EAAT for those who need it most. I admire your desire to change the world one stride at a time. Keep up the good work and please be in touch with issues, comments, concerns, praises or to share your story. Together we can show the world how effective our equine partners are in the lives of those with disabilities.
