Hey everyone. It’s great to finally join the Horse Saddle Shop team! Finally? Yeah, I’ve been eyeing this place for a while now! There’s something about a family owned business, the art of handmade leather products, and a two-minute drive from home that kept drawing me to this place. I always knew Chuck and the crew were up to some great things here, but I can’t tell you how exciting it is to finally be in the saddle.

I’ve always loved a great story. I went to school for Public Relations where I learned that everyone, even companies, have a story. Horse Saddle Shop is no different. It’s easy to fall in love with a company and story that has it’s roots in God, family, and a passion for what they sell.

I can’t wait to get to know you all a little better on our Facebook page and Twitter channel! But in the meantime, here are some fun facts to help you get to know me.

Your most recent purchase?
A clothes dryer belt. Installed at lunch today. My husband duties are complete for the weekend.

What is something most people don't know about you?
I love film photography. Yeah, the old fashion stuff. I do wedding, engagement, and family photos on the side and I shoot film 90% of the time.

If you could vacation anywhere...where would you go? 
I’d spend a week in Maine where I would eat nothing but crab legs and lobster for every meal.

What inspires you? 
The creative class - leather experts, film photographers, blacksmiths, letterpress, boot makers, and the list continues. There’s something I love about the process of creating something by hand. It inspires me.

What famous person do people tell you that you look like? 
The Brawny Man or Josh Hartnett

Favorite food? 
Haluski. Yeah, you probably haven’t heard of this before, but if you have, you know what heaven will be like. It’s a family tradition and, from what I gather, a traditional Polish dish. It’s made up of cabbage, noodles, potatoes, bacon, and butter... lots and lots of butter.
