She grew up with horses, learning on her own, in a small-town north of Seattle. She took a 15-year break from horses while enjoying USAF funded “travel” with husband and four boys, except for those two short trail rides through the German countryside. When they settled in the Tri-Cities five years ago, she jumped back in as soon as she could. That included volunteering at TROT. She started as a TROT instructor in 2016. She spends happy times on local trails with her horse Cosmo. Her miniature horse Blue pulls a cart in many of the area’s parades. She relishes learning and growing in knowledge and horsemanship. Sharing her love of horses and riding brings her great enjoyment.
