“The work of the Osteopath is to adjust the body from the abnormal to the normal; then the abnormal condition gives place to the normal and health is the result of the normal condition.”

Kerilyn Peck

Kerilyn Peck grew up in Sandy Hook, Connecticut and was an active rider throughout her youth and teenage years, competing in Hunter, Equitation and Jumper divisions at local and “A” Rated shows throughout the Northeast. She was also an active, open rider, and Captain for her Alma mater’s equestrian team, Fairfield University Equestrian Team.


She pursued an undergraduate degree, a Bachelor of Science in Economics and Mathematics, and is currently pursuing a Masters of Science in Applied Economics through Johns Hopkins University. After suffering from residual injuries from a car accident in 2010, she set out to find an alternative therapy that had lasting results. Kerilyn was lucky enough to find an Osteopath in CT and never looked back. The profound impact that osteopathy had on her life initiated a passion and a curiosity. Could osteopathy have the same impact on her hard working horses? At one point, she thought the only option would be starting her own program. Much to her surprise, her osteopathic therapist discovered and introduced her to The Vluggen Institute.

Kerilyn started attending the Vluggen Institute in San Marcos, TX in October of 2013 and is set to graduate in November of 2017.
