Share a little about yourself.

I spent my first 18 years living in Appleton, Wisconsin, but dreamed of a life surrounded by horses in Kentucky. My equestrian background initially focused on performance Quarter Horses, which led me to my current horse and partner, Sidney, in 2010; together, we showed for six years in the Quarter Horse All-Around (Western Pleasure, Horsemanship, Trail, Hunter Under Saddle, Equitation, and more!). After moving to Lexington in 2018 to pursue my dream at the University of Kentucky, I became much more involved with the Thoroughbred racing industry and eventing, where I started to learn more about and become interested in dressage, leading me to USDF! When I am not around horses, I love to drive and work on cars (specifically classic BMWs), and I am a proud owner of a 1996 BMW M3. With my love for horses and vehicles, some friends have deemed me a “transportation girl.”
