I began riding at the age of 9 and knew that it was my forever passion. The barn was my favorite place to be when I was growing up and I spent hours riding, grooming, and just hanging out. I currently work in the corporate world during the week so my teaching time on the weekends is very important to me. I adore teaching and working with all my riders and have gotten to know them and their strengths quite well. I love working with all the horses and have learned each of their personalities and attributes. Teaching at New Hope gives me the opportunity to be part of something bigger than myself and provides me with a purpose to use my skills to create learning, happiness, and joy for others.
