I started riding at 10 years old and became a pro right where I turned 18. From an early age I always knew I wanted to be a trainer and spend the rest of my life in the horse industry. I can't imagine doing anything else. I've done Junior Jumpers, Mini Prixs, Equitation Finals, and lots of hunters and derbies. Our barn now is very hunter forward, so that is where most of my professional experience has been.

What would you like to contribute as a NorCal board member? 
I would love to contribute a perspective from a young professional and to represent the needs of the younger generations. I do well in team environments and love to positively contribute to the conversation and topics at hand.
How do you think NorCal can best fulfill the needs of its membership? 
The best way for NorCal to fulfill the needs of its membership, is to simply listen to what the members have to say. I think the horse industry is in a pivotal place right now, and our smaller organizations have to band together within the board and members alike.

Thank you sponsors!
