Catrina “Nina” Hellmer is a 2014 graduate from the University of New Hampshire holding a BS in Environmental Science and Ecosystems. She grew up in the United States Pony Club and is a C3 graduate from Old North Bridge Pony Club. This background fueled her loved eventing, team work, teaching young up and coming pony clubbers, and horsemanship. She has never limited herself to one discipline.
Catrina has been in Ocala since 2014 where she has done everything from hunter/jumpers to galloping racehorses. Here is where she found her love working as a veterinary technician and in 2018 decided to go back to school to become a certified veterinary technician. In the summer of 2021 she graduated, passed the Florida Veterinary Technicians board exam and now works at Marion Veterinary Hospital in Ocala.
Catrina owns Moonshine Cate, a recently retired TB racehorse who she had the pleasure of galloping for the past two years. Now Cate is moving onto her next career!
