I was born and raised in Norway, in a rural setting, so when I first came to participate in volunteer training at TRC it felt like I was home. After years in the entertainment business in and around Los Angeles, and London, England, I was ready for something more down to earth. The tranquility and beauty of caring for horses, and sharing in the joy of our students as they come to grow and delight in learning to ride, has been a truly transformational journey.
My experience with horses previously was limited to occasional trail rides, until my niece became an accomplished equestrian and introduced me to her horse, and love of all things equine related. This inspired me to search out something in this arena.
I am honored to serve on the TRC board, and have previous experience as a board member of Screen Actors Guild. My favorite thing remains hands on volunteer experience with our horses and students, as often as time and energy permits.
