Spending her childhood summers in a small town in Georgia, Cliffette developed a love and respect for horses. Her grandmother lived next door to a special needs foster home, where Cliffette spent many of her days playing with her friendly neighbors, warming her heart for the special needs community at a young age.
A native of south Florida, Cliffette began working in the administration field right out of high school. While continuing to go to college for her associate’s degree she was given the opportunity to work for a luxury yacht company where she began her love for event planning, bookkeeping and office management. Cliffette then took a leap of faith and moved to central Florida where she had the chance to work with a local non-profit. She knew then that her future would be giving back to her community while providing her administrative expertise to a non-profit. Having moved back to south Florida to be closer with family and friends, she discovered Equine-Assisted Therapies of South Florida and quickly fit right in.
Being able to work within a community-oriented organization for the special needs, alongside horses, is such a great experience and is what makes her job at Equine-Assisted Therapies of South Florida such an enjoyable one. Her favorite horse is Hallory.
Arron began riding horses before he began walking. A native of British Columbia, he worked with and around horses from a very young age. As a part time self-employed photographer, he brings the dedication and commitment entrepreneurs need to the EATSF team.
Because of his extensive horse knowledge, Arron considers himself the “horse’s advocate” to ensure and promote our horse’s well-being. Through his leadership and training our horses have flourished and reached their potential in a safe and nurturing environment.
Majeeda is a native of Trinidad but lived her adolescence years in Brooklyn NY and her teenage to adult years in Coral Springs FL. A 13 year veteran of the Marketing and Advertising industry, she has experience in a variety of avenues. Majeeda began doing volunteer work in addition to her daily work responsibilities. She developed a strong sense of devotion for the nonprofit sector as a volunteer of a youth development program. This experience gave her a deep appreciation for how nonprofits seek to improve the quality of life. As a reminder to herself that she wanted to devote her work ethics to make a difference, she decided to change direction in careers.
Never having the opportunity to be around horses, Majeeda is very thankful that she can work and enjoy the company of her favorite animal. She feels blessed to have the opportunity to work within an organization whose mission is to help the special needs experience life without limits and is excited for what knowledge she will gain.
