In 2013, she was awarded the USHJA Vital Staff Support Award in recognition of her exemplary and instrumental work in the success of the sport’s competitions throughout the year. In her spare time, she enjoys riding her horse, working out at the gym, traveling, playing with her dogs and spending time with her husband, Nick, and two young son’s, Greyson and Declan.
