Driven by a passion for horses that was evident in my walks to nursery school with my imaginary white horse, I started my equestrian journey at the age of six. It is amazing to think that this childhood dream would become a reality over four decades later! My father's connection to a riding stable through his Agway Feed & Grain store gave me the opportunity to start taking lessons at an early age, beginning with hunter/jumpers and later transitioning to dressage as an adult.
Moving to Saratoga Springs, NY in 2002 was a pivotal moment in both my personal life and riding career. The journey has been truly special, not just because of the horses I have had the privilege to learn from, but also the amazing people I have met along the way who have made it even more fulfilling!
