I devote most of my free time to my job, husband and our 10 children, I mean animals:

Pickle-the blue heeler

Reno the Missouri Mutt

Chedder and Zora our indoor rescue cat

Domino our barn guardian and rescue cat

Zero- 6 y.o. BLM mustang gelding featured in Wild Horse Wild Ride

Aurora- 10 y.o. Friesian Cross and American Warmblood mare

Hi Yo Silver Away- Barn name "Silver."  He is a 6 y.o. throuroughbred that we picked up from the track in April 2013.

Fritz- almost 4 y.o, dutch bred friesian cross gelding

 I compete in eventing, jumping and some endurance riding.  The gentling of my mustang was featured in a documentary called "Wild Horse Wild Ride," an award-winning film directed by Alex Dawson and Greg Gricus.  

I have a PhD in biomedical engineering and have spent the last 3 years as a scientist in the agriculture industry.

I grew up in Green Bay, Wi and love water, cheese, animals, music and of course football. I spent my summers boating on Lake Michigan and waterskiing. I was also a devout violinist and choral member and participated in ensembles for about 18 years. I have been crazy about horses since I could speak.
