Share a little about yourself.
I graduated from Eastern Kentucky University with my Bachelor’s of Science degree. I started riding when I was 5 and grew up competing in the hunter/jumper world. I was also involved with 4-H and FFA. I switched disciplines to eventing when I started college. My OTTB mare, Bertie, and I successfully competed up to Training Level in eventing. Bertie still lives on my parents’ farm and we show small jumper shows and mini-trials for fun. Since starting at USDF, I married my husband, and we own two goofy dogs; a Lab and an English Mastiff.
