Nursing PhD student Sharon White-Lewis, with Sweet Pea, researches equine therapy for arthritis patients
Sharon White-Lewis earns a fair share of double takes as she’s driving her blue Mini Cooper with Sweet Pea’s head sticking out the passenger window.
Sure is. Sweet Pea is her 175-pound miniature palomino. At 27 inches tall, this 7 year old attracts smiles and attention most anywhere she goes — especially when she’s wearing sneakers. White-Lewis, director of the Bachelor of Science in Nursing program and an associate professor at Saint Luke’s College of Health Sciences, takes Sweet Pea to hospitals, hospice centers, domestic violence shelters, retirement communities and inpatient mental health facilities for children and adolescents.
