Equestrian Admissions Counselor Admissions

I came to Emory & Henry from Yorktown, Virginia, and graduated with a B.A. in Equine Studies in 2018. I had an awesome collegiate experience with Intermont Equestrian, riding on the IHSA, IDA, and ANRC teams, and worked for several professional Virginian equestrians post-graduation. I was thrilled to get the opportunity to return to E&H and help other students find their passion and thrive at this incredible institution.
