Our Admin Staff
Louisa was pulled to Energy Equine for a variety of reasons, including the company’s over-arching focus on the equine athlete, innovative and collaborative outlook and the fact the team isn't scared to be unique! The story goes that she stalked Dr. Hewlett around a variety of events before he gave her a job in May of 2018 as the team’s social media manager. She has since gone on to wear the hat of Director of Marketing, and now Clinic Director. Louisa does a little bit of everything in the clinic, still managing our marketing, sponsorships, trade shows and events while overseeing reception, scheduling and client services. Louisa’s personal and professional lives often overlap, her passion is in the western discipline of cutting and she is heavily involved in the performance horse industry. A former National Cutting Horse Association World Finalist, she is currently a Director within various levels of the NCHA and can be found “loping” for cutting horse trainers at horse shows on the weekend while she bides her time before returning to the show pen.
Director of Finance
Nancy is an integral part of the Energy Equine team, handling the myriad of financial responsibilities that come with a clinic, as well as human resources and much of the day-to-day operations that keep Energy Equine afloat. Her background in the dental world means that she brings a wealth of knowledge to bridging operations and administration, and is hyper-aware of customer service and client retention. In her spare time she is passionate about permaculture, she operates Sage Creek Permaculture with Chad and spending time in the mountains alongside her family.
Nikala joined the Energy Equine team in January of 2019 managing the pharmacy, along with the clinic's inventory. She was drawn to Energy Equine because of the integrative and collaborative mindset of the veterinary team and support staff. Day-to-day you can find Nikala mastering paperwork, pharmacy counts and inventory control, plus she always lends a helping hand on the operations side when needed. Nikala is motivated each day by the never-ending opportunity to learn more about veterinary medicine and sports medicine. When Nikala is not filling her role at our clinic, you can find her training and teaching hunter/jumper lesson while developing horses and riders alike. Nikala lives in Airdrie with her husband, her dog-children Ellie and Kona and Quando her 6 year old Canadian Warmblood.
