The woman who first taught me to ride horses also introduced me to equine journalism. My riding teacher, Ms. Liza, supplemented my early horse education with stacks of dog-eared horse magazines, from Equus to Horse and Rider to Western Horseman. One hour a week, I saddled horses, cleaned stalls, and learned the basics. Then Liza sent me home with pages torn from horse magazines, covering topics ranging from fly control techniques to vaccination schedules to wound management. These early memories, combined with my love of writing, are part of why I work as a freelance equine journalist today.
Whether you hire me to write a profile, craft an educational series or create eye-catching copy, you can count on my writing to be clear, detailed, and accurate. My stories are based on thorough interviews with expert sources, such as veterinarians, farriers, and trainers, but I also bring my own knowledge base and research to the table. In addition to owning horses for nearly twenty years, I earned my graduate degree in equine science in 2012 and continue to educate myself on the care and welfare of today’s horse. Above all, I love telling stories and working with others to improve the horse industry. I work from my home in Nashville, Tennessee, and enjoy traveling across the United States to capture photos and stories.
My on-the-job journalism experiences include serving as the 2012 publications intern with the American Quarter Horse Association. Since then, I’ve worked as a contributing writer and/or photographer for magazines such as Horse Illustrated, Horse & Rider, The NRHA Reiner, Hoof Beats, The Paint Horse Journal, The Equine Chronicle, and The Mid-South Horse Review. I am also the host of the official podcast of Equine Affaire.
