Tracy Weber, Ph.D., founder of Kaleidoscope Learning Circle (KLC), llc. (http://www.myklc.com) a company that partners with horses to help humans through professional development and personal growth experiential programs, and is the author of Wildly Successful (Http://www.wildlysuccessfulsolutions.com). Tracy’s TEDxSVSU, Horse Wisdom for the Human World” represents some of her perspective (it’s only 16:22 minutes long, so couldn’t possibly represent ALL of it 😉 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hr3QjTSomFE&t=4s.
Over the 16 years of Kaleidoscope’s existence, teams from KLC have facilitated Equine-Assisted Learning experiences for thousands of individuals; primarily in the areas of leadership, team development, and Kaleidoscope-created self-awareness offerings such as “Passion, Painting & Ponies”. Tracy also convened an Equine-Assisted Education Summit, creating a dvd (available for purchase) with timeless resources for all Equine-Assisted providers. Additionally, she’s presented at numerous conferences, summits, and meetings, both with and without her horse partners, sharing themes that represent her core understandings of how humans are motivated and engaged providing practical tools for audiences to apply. In partnership with dually-trained licensed mental health professionals/horse specialists as co-facilitators, Kaleidoscope has served people in grief work, adjudicated youth, and other mental health challenges.
Dr. Weber is adjunct faculty for Prescott College, Michigan State University, Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), and Northwood University. As a RIT graduate, adjunct faculty member, and advisory board member for the Department of Service Systems, Service Leadership & Innovation Program, she has facilitated Master’s degree courses in Dubai, Croatia, and the Dominican Republic, including demonstrations of equine-assisted work in both Dubai and Croatia. At Prescott, she worked with Dr. Paul Smith to launch the equine-assisted learning (EAL) Master’s and post-Master’s certificate; additionally she worked for the college as Core Faculty, Content Reader, Instructor, and Best Practices presenter.
As a life-long learner, Tracy seeks out new experiences, books, and resources. She’s a joiner, connector, and active organization member, that seeks to bring value to whatever she is involved in; currently these organizations include the Experiential Training Development and Alliance (ETDA), Association of Experiential Education (AEE), Frankenmuth Noon Rotary, and Saginaw County Business and Education Partnership (SCBEP). Her proudest and most educational role, is that as the mother of two amazing young women, both educated and entering careers in the helping fields. She and her husband, Randy, enjoy travel, discovering local color and finding “holes in the wall” wherever they go. They are entering a new chapter of their life together, which will blend Tracy’s passion for helping people in partnership with horses, with Randy’s love of driving “grey roads” (non-expressway). They also enjoy laughing, cooking, and ‘killing time between meals’ on their pontoon at their cottage on Higgins Lake, MI hosting family and friends making memories.
