Show Notes

Melissa Vashé lives on a ranch Tierra del Alma (Land of the Soul) with several acres along with her herd: three horses, one mule, and three dogs, with numerous cats she fosters.  On this ranch located in a sleepy town, Hondo, New Mexico, life is far cry from what life was like during her addiction, heartbreak, and trauma that haunted her for years. Melissa now over 25 years in total recovery, has established a life she has always dreamed of.

Melissa is a Certified Equus Coach through the Center for Equus Coaching and has an M.Ed. in art education with an emphasis in arts integration.  Melissa believes, “we can all explore possibility, ask why not instead of why, and shift our lives to a deep sense of meaning, fulfillment and freedom”.

She has 17 years of arts education experience in the California Bay Area teaching students as well as teaching teachers how to integrate the arts for learning and understanding. From her background in education, Melissa is highly qualified in facilitating and teaching active listening and conflict resolution.

Having enjoyed diversity in her careers, Melissa has an extensive background in culinary, hospitality, events, and restaurant management. Before transitioning to New Mexico, she was a manager at a Michelin star restaurant on a boutique property in Sonoma County wine country.

Melissa and her BLM mustang Roo are members of the California Centaurs and Mounted Archery Association of the Americas. She has trained with international equestrian Hilary Merrill for over 9 years and has been influenced and educated by Mustang Matt and Hilary Hanson. Melissa lives with her herd on her ranch, Tierra del Alma in Hondo, NM.
