How long have you been with USDF?  

I have been with USDF since June 2019.

What is the favorite part of your job? 

My favorite part of the job is getting to travel as a USDF representative to the Regional Championship competitions.  We work very hard throughout the year in preparation for the Regional Championships, and it is rewarding to be able to interact with our competitors at the horse show and share in their success. 

What is your favorite part of USDF? 

I come from an equestrian sport background, and it is very rewarding to work in an industry I am passionate about.  

Share a little about yourself.  

I am a lifelong Lexington resident.  I grew up riding and showing hunter/jumpers, and gradually evolved to doing mainly eventing after college.  This summer, I acquired a Thoroughbred off the track as an eventing and dressage prospect.  I worked for nearly ten years at the University of Kentucky in various administrative roles and medical billing.  After graduating with my masters in Agricultural Health and Safety, I made the move to USDF.  I am an avid animal lover, and have 3 dogs, 3 cats, and a handful of reptiles.  In my free time (ha) I also like to run and read.
