Empowering Lives One Step at a Time:
Tumble-Tails Farm AAI Center's Founding Story
In 2017, after spontaneously selling my home to a dear friend, I found myself in need for change and restoration due to unexpected life events. With three dogs in tow and no place to go, I realized that I needed to move on, but I had no idea what that looked like.
What I found was a 1700's farm that was basically ready to be condemned. The house was collapsing in, the grass was higher than a person, there were cars, trailers, and tons of other "treasures" buried throughout the yard. The barn was so packed full you could not even get one step in the door. The garage was falling over and being held up solely by additional floor to ceiling "treasures". There was no running water or safe electricity inside the house. Enter the camper and the log cabin where my life would transform.
When I stepped foot onto the farm, I was immediately struck by the incredible beauty and potential that surrounded it. I envisioned my dreams coming to life before my very eyes. And more than anything, what I saw was myself - a living, breathing testament to the power of restoration.
When others thought I had lost my mind and gone over the deep end, I saw life and the strength that both this farm and I had to make the biggest comeback possible.
As a nurse, especially my years as a Flight Nurse, I have seen things that no one should ever have to see. I have worked side by side with Police, Fire and other EMS providers to deal with the worst side of humans. I understand the unique challenges faced by professional EMS personnel. Witnessing traumatic events on a daily basis takes a significant emotional toll, and I found myself committed to providing fellow EMS as well as their loved ones, the support they need to maintain their mental and emotional well-being. Although my passion originated from EMS, the dream I have is for EVERYONE.
I wanted the farm to be a place where self-discovery and acceptance is at the forefront. I became dedicated to helping others find themselves and reconnect with nature. Given my own life experiences, I developed a core value to promote and encourage self-acceptance, regardless of someone's background or struggles through interactions with animals. My aim was/is to meet people in the here and now of their life and help guide them to a place of healing.
And now in 2023, Here I am living in this beautiful tranquil home surrounded by hundreds of years of history and the spirits of those who have come and gone, providing an incredible place for human restoration.
I hope this this will give you a better look at what Tumble Tails Farm is about and where my passion into helping others stems from.
