Andrea Joyet: CBT, CFP

Andrea is a farrier in northern Colorado who holds a Master’s degree in Zoology. A former zookeeper, Andrea was a part of Cheyenne Mountain Zoo’s giraffe hoofwork training program from its inception in 2013. Through this program, she met Steve Foxworth and was introduced to the importance of hoofcare. Andrea apprenticed with Steve from 2016 to 2018 and during this time had the opportunity to travel to Africa to help conduct the first wild giraffe hoof study. She is now the Operations Manager for the Zoo Hoofstock Trim Program (ZHTP), allowing her to share her passion for hoofcare with her peers, while building upon her own knowledge base. Andrea accepted the role of Secretary for the ELPO in early 2019, then transitioned to the Board of Directors in 2022.
