Kari Swenson grew up in an outdoor athletic family where being active wasn’t a choice, it was a life style. She grew up hiking, camping, canoeing, nordic and alpine skiing in Montana. Her interest in horses at a young age led to 4-H where she raised, trained and showed a horse from yearling to maturity. Her passion for horses and all animals led her to a career in Veterinary Medicine. She graduated from Colorado State University in 1990 and continues to practice small animal medicine in Bozeman, Montana. Her life revolves around staying physically fit and surrounding herself with family (including dogs, cats and horses) and friends. Passion for the mountains continue to lure her on adventures by skis, feet or horseback. Kari is looking forward to giving back to her community by being a board member of Windhorse Equine Learning.
