Senior Kim Salisbury is helping out her town by working an internship at Discovery Ranch, located in Mapleton. Discovery Ranch is a high-end treatment center for troubled teens in which they focus on equine (working with horses) therapy. Kim is interested in this line of work because she enjoys helping others with their struggles that they may face in life; and, to learn about people and why we do what we do.
Her duties at the ranch are to observe the equine therapy and complete any tasks she was asked to perform. Kim says that the time she has spent at Discovery Ranch has enhanced her interest in this field of work. Kim recommends working an internship because you are able to learn about a career you are interested in while you are in high school instead of waiting until you are in collage.
