Sara is a 2018 graduate of Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, Ohio. She graduated Summa Cum Laude with her Bachelors in Science of Education. She is a licensed Intervention Specialist for students with mild to moderate and moderate to intensive disabilities. Her primary focus is children with Autism and Learning Disabilities. She plans on getting her certificate for Autism Studies.
While Sara loves teaching, she also loves horses and used her love of horses and helping others to develop the idea of the MagnaHalter™ . The idea first came to her while working with young children and horses, and she realized that some children did not have the fine motor skills to undo horse halters. She herself experienced the same difficulty with the halters one winter when she was not able to undo the halters due to the bulkiness of gloves, that is when she realized para-equestrians may not be able to do equine halters independently due to their disabilities.

"...We've also had one of our participants who is older and has degenerative nerve issues in his hands from diabetes use it...he LOVES that there isn't a snap he has to deal with anymore. He physically can't snap most halters at this point so the ability to grab the strap and slide the magnet in to attach has been awesome for him. "
"...I found the magnetic clasp much easier to do rather than a normal halter. Fastening other halters usually takes me a lot longer, if at all possible, so I was very happy when I could just slip this magnet into place with little to no time!"
