Strengths and Weaknesses

• What do you most enjoy about working with horses?

My personal philosophy as a rider advocates developing the horses with patience and correct communication and I believe there is no quick fix for problems in the training method. This said I thoroughly enjoy the process and find it very rewarding to see the horses evolve under our guidance.

• Why should employers consider you above any other job seeker?

Bringing a lifetime of involvement with competitive dressage, including participation and management, I form strong relationships with other professionals in the industry easily. My interpersonal skills play a central role in developing a rapport with prospective clients, and my ability to network initially generate these connections. Working with sponsors has pushed me to create unique content both written and visual in order to stand out and secure continued support. After five years as a coach, athlete and manager, I am looking for a new challenge which involve my creative and competitive nature and challenge me to think in new ways.
