Catriona Coffey, Barn Staff
     Catriona's involvement with Mane Stream began in 2008 when she started volunteering with group lessons. She quickly fell in love and volunteered as much as possible. In 2012, Catriona began working as part of the barn staff during the summer months and her breaks from college. She currently attends Boston College, where she is pursuing a degree in biology, and hope to attend veterinary school after she graduates. Catriona and her family also raise Seeing Eye puppies, and she enjoys riding horses when she gets the chance. In addition to working at Mane Stream, Catriona also works a local veterinary clinic.
