Share a little about yourself:  

I was born and raised outside of Chicago, Illinois, and I’ve worked with Thoroughbred & Quarter Horse racing for most of my life.  First with my parents , then I joined the industry myself as head clocker and TV analyst for Remington Park in Oklahoma City, worked in the Racing Office & I was a Breeder’s Cup event volunteer in California, and later by owning my own horses in Ohio. After several years, I decided to move closer to my three children and moved to Lexington to work at Three Chimneys Farm in the foaling barn.  I loved working with mares, foals, yearlings, and weanlings, but in 2017, the daily grind of the farm began to wear on me, and I decided I needed something different.  I found a great position within USDF, and it gives me the opportunity to be involved with horses and learn new things within the sport of dressage.
