I fell in love with Australian Shepherds in Colorado in 1984 when I met my first one. I was student teaching in Boulder, Colorado, and another teacher brought her Aussie to the end-of-school picnic to play with the kids. That blue merle bitch captured my heart, and after that day, I knew that my next dog would be an Aussie, but I had to wait until 1995 for that dream to come true.
I finally got my first Aussie, Chase, in 1995 and immediately joined ASCA and I have been a continuous member for 20 years. My husband, Scott, and I live with our six bred-by Aussies, which carry my kennel name, Chase, named for my first one. My Aussies and I have trained in agility, obedience and stockdog trialing; we have titled in conformation, obedience and agility, and we qualified for Conformation Finals three times. I strive to be a steward of the versatile Australian Shepherd. I feel that Aussie breeders have an obligation to preserve the intelligence, the athleticism and the instinct that makes this breed special to us all.
I have been a very active member of ASCA, serving on the Board of two different affiliates, Heart of Texas and Hill Country, including president, treasurer, and affiliate representative. I am currently serving as the president of Hill Country A.S.C. I served as the Chairman of the 2014 ASCA National Specialty in Bryan, Texas. My team and I enjoyed that so much, that we will be hosting Nationals again in 2017. Since 2011, I have also had the honor of serving as an ASCA Conformation Judge. The privilege of judging has not only given me a deeper appreciation of our breed but also for the people who love it.
I LOVE ASCA and I am deeply honored to serve on the Board. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to give back to the club that has given me so much for the past twenty years.
