Miss Shaney Othic
I am the current director of Northland Therapeutic Riding Center in Holt, Mo. We provided equine assisted activities and therapies to individuals with special needs on a 32 acre farm. I have a BSW and in the past have worked as a Community Support Worker in the adult mental health arena. I started at NTRC as a volunteer 6 years ago, served as a board member for 3 years and then moved into the part time director role in September 2019. The organization has rapidly grown so I will be full time beginning September of 2020! In my spare time I like to spend time with my adult children and other family, ride horses, go to concerts and live music venues, read, garage sale, and cook!
