Amanda Haun


Hi I’m Amanda Haun!  My daughter has been vaulting since August of 2018.  I graduated from University of Northern Colorado in 2003. I was critical care nurse for 15 years with a focus in Burn/Trauma and wound care for the last several years. I am now shifting my nursing focus to be a Legal Nurse Consultant.  In 2017 I was diagnosed with Acute Promyolitic Leukemia. I went through a year of chemo and am now a cancer survivor!!  I enjoy spending time with my family and  riding horses, I have a big red roan mare that I hope to enter into ranch horse and reining! Besides family and horses, I also enjoy quilting!
