Experience

Paige grew up riding and caring for horses and always knew that horses would play a role in her career. She established a significant horse- and barn-sitting business before and after attending college and managed a small family barn. Paige also volunteered for a therapeutic riding program for many years, and has volunteered her grant writing talents to help horse rescues. 

It was this passion for helping horses in need that prompted Paige to earn her equine massage certification. While she still practices equine massage on the side, today Paige largely focuses on her writing career. Horses continue to play a prominent role in her career, and she writes for a variety of equine-focused publications and businesses. 

Education

Paige majored in music and English at Westfield State University. In 2008 she began the 200-hour equine massage certification program through the Bancroft School of Massage. She completed the program in 2009 and used her skills to not only help other riders' horses enjoy improved comfort and performance, but to also help Whisper, the ex-racehorse she later bought, overcome some physical challenges that resulted from her racing career.
