Meredith McKenzie brings more than 35 years experience
in business, government, and non-profit organizational ecosystems to her
work as an Equine Assisted Educator.
A graduate of Loyola Law School and former real estate
company CEO/Team Leader, Meredith has worked extensively with American and
international C-Suite executives as well as business/non-profit
implementation teams and governing boards, in developing programs that
emphasize active listening, shared goal setting, and collective
accountability, utilizing a coactive coaching approach.
In addition, Meredith has been an adjunct faculty
member in the College of Environmental Design at the California State
Polytechnic University, Pomona, one of the country's premier experiential
learning colleges and home to the renowned W. K. Kellogg Arabian Horse
Center research facility.
A lifelong equestrian, Meredith's passion for this
work unfolded over the last decade thanks to the intuitive guidance of her
faithful Lobo, a former championship rodeo quarter horse she bought off an
auction truck for $1,000 and helped rehabilitate to full health, though she
will be the first to tel1 you that Lobo actually saved her. Today, she and
this all-around ranch horse participate in team cattle sorting, breakaway
roping, and long-distance trail trials and rides throughout the Golden State
and its National Parks and Forests.
Meredith believes in a collaborative approach to
coaching and team building, with a focus on our invisible sense of 'feel'
and how to align our behaviors with this important intuitive tool, often
buried in the highly competitive left-brain world of Western business
