Kelcee Heinrich

 Office Administrator & Volunteer Coordinator

Kelcee

Kelcee began her affiliation with TTRC in 2012 as an incoming Freshman to Texas Tech University. She participated in the Introduction to Hippotherapy class, which is when she first came out to the Therapeutic Riding and Therapy Center. After her first day of class, she knew she wanted to gear her collegiate studies toward Equine-Assisted Therapy, in order to hopefully work at TTRC. Kelcee interned at TTRC throughout her Senior year at Texas Tech, and graduated with a Bachelor's of Animal Science with a focus in Equine Science in 2016. She was then offered a full-time job as the Volunteer Coordinator and Office Manager for TTRC, upon graduation. Nearing her third year of working with the center, Kelcee received her certification as a PATH Registered Therapeutic Riding Instructor in the Fall of 2019. Kelcee has an immense passion for TTRC and considers the riders, volunteers, staff, and horses as her family! When Kelcee isn't with her TTRC family, she enjoys spending time with her non-center family, including her husband Kaleb and their fur babies, Midnight and Rocco.
