Maxima was born and raised in Tuxtcla Cuevillas Guerrero located Southwest of Mexico City. At a very young age he was surrounded by different types of animals as his family raised cattle, goats and pigs. His grandfather also started and raised colts. At a very young age he wanted to go to school to become a veterinarian but during that time boys were expected to help around the ranch and we’re not allowed to go to school. In 2001 he emigrated to California and went back and forth to Washington State working different jobs. He met his wife Sonia in November of 2004 and they married that following year. In December of 2005 they travel to Washington State to visit relatives and decided to stay. Max worked different jobs for the next couple years until he found a job with a horse trainer which brought us to the Spokane area. He has always said he wanted to be around horses which has been his passion since a very young age. In 2015 he heard about a job with McKinlay & Peters. Max jumped on board and went to the interview. He loved the place and in his heart he felt this is where he wanted to be. He got the job that he had always been searching for and wouldn’t change it for the world! Max has 4 children: Catherine, Brianna, Joseph and baby Max.
