Kris’s amazing childhood enabled her to be exposed to animals from an early age- Living in Africa, Colombia, several States in America and Coast to Coast in our Beautiful country of Canada. She was always surrounded by animals and managed to bring some of them home. Her first Horse was rescued in Newfoundland at the age of 12!!

With a Diploma from Guelph University in Horticulture Design , Environmental Resource Studies at Trent University and a Master Organic Gardener Seal she combined her love of the outdoors and nature to start her own Landscaping business in 1998 (which is still going strong today!)

Her love of animals is endless and in 2016 Second Chance Cheekye Ranch was born . She manages all aspects of the Non-Profit Organization along with 4 incredible Board Members and some of the most dedicated volunteers she has ever met.

“I had my wedding in July 2017 at the ranch. They made it the most spectacular day! It is a beautiful space. The view of the mountains to the river roaring. All 200 guests really enjoyed the ranch, and have been talking about it ever since."

“We found everything we were looking for at Cheekye Ranch nestled in the mountains, surrounded by such beauty! Our friends and family pitched tents and parked RVs and just had a wonderful time with us for the weekend. I am so thankful to Kris, Greg and Amy for their kindness and support leading up to and through our wedding day. Just a lovely spot that will always have a warm place in our hearts.”
