Meet Kenzie


I have been a lifelong equestrian and studied Animal Science/Pre-Veterinary Medicine at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, with the initial goal of becoming an equine veterinarian. I worked for Waikiki Aquarium, Honolulu Zoo & Sea Life Park Hawaii training & caring for marine mammals. I returned to Washington State in 2015 to work for the US Navy Marine Mammal Program at Bangor Naval Base training dolphins & sea lions. After, I ventured back into veterinary medicine working as a multi-species veterinary technician for Pilchuck Veterinary Hospital, VCA Central Kitsap Animal Hospital, and Sound Equine. After losing a horse to hoof related issues, I got started on my hoof care journey with my two ponies, Moon & Poptart. I have been trimming hooves under professional mentorship for over four years, studied with Daisy Bicking's Integrative Hoof School and I am undergoing the certification process with Progressive Hoof Care Practitioners (PHCP, I am obsessed with hooves, equine nutrition, and improving horse welfare. I attend continuing education events year-round nationwide to improve my hoof care practice.
It is my mission to empower owners with hoof knowledge, and help horses that I so deeply love.
