Misty Ryan
Conformation, Jr and Obedience
I have been with ASCA since December of 2012. I serve as the Conformation, Obedience and Junior coordinator, and most recently began overseeing the affiliate club renewals. It has been joy over the years to serve the ASCA community. I enjoy not only getting to know the breed, but also getting to know the people I serve. I look forward to serving ASCA for many years to come.

Ashley Harris
Registrar
I’ve been around Aussies for about half my life, and as soon as I was introduced to them, they became my favorite dog breed for their friendliness and intelligence. I was more interested in chasing one of my family’s dogs around the living room in circles (Jasper’s favorite pastime) or giving them both belly rubs (Penny’s preferred pastime), than running around the ring with them. However, in the fall of 2016, my step dad, who has been involved in ASCA for a while, had heard that the office was hiring student workers and recommended that I contact them. At the time, I was a broke college student, so I immediately jumped on that opportunity; it helped that I loved dogs and knew what ASCA was. After three years of mailing, filing, scanning, and learning (both in the classroom and in the office), in May 2019, I graduated from Texas A&M with a B.A. in English and a Minor in Art (I’m an insatiable reader who likes to paint on occasion). Shortly after, I was asked to come on full time as Receptionist/Membership Coordinator, then, in the fall of 2019, I was asked to take over as Agility Coordinator. ASCA has been my favorite job so far, and even though I’m still young, I think it will always have a special place in my heart because of the wonderful community, the amount that I have been able to learn about an amazing organization, and the rewarding experience.

Heidi Mobley
Webmaster/AussEnews
In 1985 I decided to purchase my first dog on my own. I was all set and knew exactly what I wanted. With money in hand, I went to the local pet store to find my Siberian Husky. I was so excited to meet my new friend, but when I arrived I was informed they didn't have any. I was extremely disappointed, but when I looked around I notice they did however have this blue-eyed dog called an Australian Shepherd. I never heard of the breed but as this gentle soul looked out at me through those cage bars, I knew she had to go home with me. Brandy introduced me to the great world of Australian Shepherds. She was true to the standard, reserved with strangers, very smart, attentive, and unusually agile. She was a wonderful dog whose talents have guided me through the years. I have always tried to remember what Brandy was like when breeding; my intelligent, biddable, little girl. Throughout the years, I have participated in almost all aspects of the breed. I've competed in all areas except tracking, and was active with Aussie Rescue for many years. I am currently a Senior Breeder judge and very active in local and national events. In my personal life, I am married to a wonderful man, Scott Mobley. Scott also loves dogs, and is currently working and trialing a few of our own dogs. In addition to our mutual love for animals, we have been blessed with two great children. Wesley is currently attending college and enjoying the bachelor life, while Mackenzie has shown the same level of interest in dogs as her parents. She is very active in conformation and together we have HOF Kennel Western Hills. When ASCA developed their own site, my company helped with the design. Then the job for a webmaster was created at ASCA, and I applied. I have since been working for ASCA for over 10 years now. I feel very fortunate that I have been able to merge my knowledge and love of photography and Australian Shepherd into a job I really enjoy. I have continued to grow with the position and am thrilled that over the years the board and office manager have allowed me to bring some of my ideas, like the AussEnews, to life.
