Mary Helene graduated from Boston University’s Sargent College in 1984.  She has been incorporating hippotherapy into PT services for over 15 years at Greenlock Therapeutic Riding Center, which allowed her to combine her love of horses with the practice of physical therapy.  Mary Helene has extensive experience with developmental disabilities across the lifespan from Early Intervention and school based PT to working with elderly adults with Developmental and Intellectual Disability. Mary Helene began training as a faculty member for the American Hippotherapy Association in 2003, became a Coordinating Faculty Member in 2006 and has returned to active faculty status after a 2 year hiatus from teaching. Mary Helene enjoys riding her 2 horses and studying natural horsemanship training techniques when not at work or teaching.
