I am very fortunate that I was introduced to Pony Club when I was 11 years old. I learned to ride multiple horses and participated in many rallies at all levels.  I received my A when I was 19, and because of Pony Club, I knew I wanted to be a schoolteacher as well as a Chief Horse Management Judge. I was a junior high science teacher for over 22 years and also taught high school agriculture. In 2005, my family (two daughters and husband) moved ourselves and our horses to Kentucky. I was hired by USPC in 2010 as Instruction Services Director, and my responsibilities include everything education surrounding the Standards of Proficiency, local and national testing, instructional materials, and supporting eight Instruction Committees. I love my job because it encompasses my two passions, which are education and horse management.
