About Brenda Makad

As a retired police officer with extensive experience in both uniform and plain clothes units across five provinces, I have worked on several high-profile Sensitive/International as well as National Security Investigations.


Having personally experienced the trauma and challenges associated with managing operational stress injuries, I have found solace and comfort in being around horses throughout my life. As a Health and Life Coach certified by the Health Coach Institute, I am committed to helping others find acceptance and balance in their lives.


I am also a member of the International Coach Federation and an Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) Personal Development Coach certified by EAL Canada, providing me with the necessary skills and expertise to guide individuals towards personal growth and self-discovery through equine-assisted therapy.
