I'm a 26 year old event rider from Whidbey Island, Washington. I grew up riding though Pony Club, achieving my "A" rating with high recommendations. At this point I began to event more regularly, which led me to work for Jan Byyny, Sally Cousins, Debbie McDonald, Adrienne Lyle, Amy Tryon, Mark and Tanya Kyle (in England) throughout the past 6 years.

I believe in creating a strong partnership with my horses and feel I have been able to create successful and confident jumping horses, with well developed dressage foundations.

While I have catch rode and competed horses for short periods of time, its notable that all three horses that I have brought along and developed from their first event to the CCI2** level all have clean XC records, and were competitive throughout. "Kejsarinna" finished 1st at Jersey Fresh CCI2** in 2008, "Konyagi" 6th at Galway Downs CCI2** in 2011, and most recently "Doesn't Play Fair", 2nd at Galway Downs CCI2** in 2013. All three horses were US bred, and were brought up the levels by myself alone.

I am excited for the 2014 season to begin, as I have been selected to ride in the High Performance training sessions with team coach David O'Connor. With a personal goal to move up to the Advanced level for the first time, it couldn't have come at a better time.
