During her tenure at Centenary, the team won two National championships.

Ethel Walker has such a great reputation in the equine world. I loved the idea of being able to work at a school and help influence young horsewomen.
My advice to a graduating Walker’s senior would be to continue to learn and grow as an individual. Always take the high ground and strive to be more well rounded.
I love working with the girls. I like to think I’m helping shape them into young adults. It’s so rewarding.
I enjoy going for walks around campus as well as hiking in the back woods of the barn with my dog Harry Winston.
