Strength Comes From Roping our Weaknesses
After years of traveling to exotic destinations, Jeana Noel, found herself returning again and again to the respite of remote rustic Montana. Owner of Bella Cucina West, this award winning nationally recognized Kitchen Designer knew that she could accomplish anything she put her mind to. Jeana bucked the norm, persevered against the unexpected, and moved to Montana to rope her dream of being Cowgirl.
As happens, in the process of searching for the perfect Montana home, she met and married her very own 4th generation Montana Cowboy. Jeana now lives happily with her husband, Bob, her horse, Rusty, two dogs, a cat and an occasional goat, just minutes from their nearby working ranch where they raise cattle, wheat and hay. Montana life is everything this smart sassy cowgirl thought it would be. Especially since she now boasts 40 cows of her own!
Chris Cooler, led by her indomitable cowgirl spirit, has spent most of her life in the natural horsemanship business. After purchasing their first horse together, this inspiring cowgirl and her handsome husband put husband, Don, through college and medical school by owning and operating a horseback riding and boarding facility in South Carolina. With a calling to venture west, the Coolers packed up the kids, horses, dogs and all they owned to move to Montana and enjoy the western lifestyle.
Chris has overcome insurmountable obstacles, and yet through it all has raised three successful sons. At the same time, Chris followed her dream of owning her own business and began Westwind Web, a successful web design and marketing business based here, in Central Montana. Involved in numerous local community organizations, she has a special gift of quiet leadership, believes in always giving others a leg up, and works hard to blaze a path for everyone’s dreams to come true.
