Board Director

My life with horses began at age 9 with Sparky.  He was true to his name.  Riding him was the game.  With lessons, I was on my way to learning, caring and loving my relationship with horses.  In my twenties, I was a partner in owning Morgans.  They were versatile, proud and showy.  Then there were years trail riding with my sister and her horses.   I came to VEWS in 2016 for solace and structure after retirement.  I learned so much more working with rescues.  What rewards I receive are watching VEWS grow in training volunteers, organizing and marketing skills, consistency with caring and training the rescues, and finding them forever homes.  I kept thinking it was time to leave VEWS, but the next scared or dazed rescue would appear giving us another challenge.  I realized I have a passion to understand what each new rescue needs, to share my knowledge with others, and watch how our consistent efforts transition these equines into adoption.  This is VEWS.
