MUSIC EDITOR & CHOREOGRAPHER
I bring a diverse background in dressage and music to the art of freestyle design with 20 years experience in the field. I hold a Bachelor's Degree in music from the University of Vermont and Master of Music Degree from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, where I was awarded a full fellowship. I taught flute at the University of Mobile and performed as soloist with ensembles such as the Magnolia Chamber Orchestra and Baldwin Pops.
My dressage mentors include Arlene Rigdon, Jos Sevriens, and at university, Susan Blinks and Sarah Geikie. I am a graduate of the USDF "L" Judge Education Program, bred and trained Swedish Warmblood horses, taught dressage lessons and clinics, and hosted recognized competitions. I have conducted freestyle clinics nationwide.
My expertise is trusted by the USDF Connection Magazine and Dressage Today to contribute educational articles.
I have been a featured speaker at a USDF convention and interviewed several times by the USDF's Dressage Talk Radio. I have also been interviewed in Zoom talks with international judge, Cesar Torrente (also my freestyle client), and Chronicle of the Horse blogger, Lauren Sprieser.
