TheissCare CEO – Mikala Vassallo

I have always liked helping people, and I know that finances are a touchy/scary subject for a lot of people. I like empowering people and educating them about their finances so they feel more confident and in control of their money.

Giving Back:

Center for Therapeutic Horsemanship

"I always felt a very deep and special connection with horses"

“I always felt a very deep and special connection with horses.”

“Growing up on the back of a horse taught me the essentials of giving back and paying it forward. I knew that when the opportunity presented itself to teach adaptive horseback riding to children and adults with physical and cognitive disabilities I could not pass this up. I knew at the deepest level of who I am, that these children and adults, with their special medical conditions, would improve with the movement that only a horse can express. When the horse and a human bond, that’s the magic.”

When Not Saving and Changing Lives at TheissCare

You can find Mikala doing her favorite thing in the world, connecting back to reality on the back of a horse, where the real magic lives every day. “I have been riding horses since the age of 7. At an early age, I found tranquility, connecting at the deepest level with mother nature and her horse, which reconnected me, to the best part of humanity.”

When not in the stables, Mikala can be found meditating and getting beyond her analytical mind as she enters into her subconscious mind where her true permanent changes take place for herself and or you.
