I started out at Wellington RDA as a volunteer through the gateway program when I was in my final year of school back in 2019. Fresh out of school I was offered the role of Coaches' Assistant helping Claire during the week, and am now very excited to be starting my Level 3 and 4 RDA coaching qualifications through an apprenticeship over the next year.
While I’ve been pretty ‘behind the scenes' focused at RDA for the past year and a bit, I’ve loved assisting with one of the Sport and Recreation classes run on a Wednesday and enjoy being met with such enthusiastic riders and helping them develop their riding skills. I am really looking forward to more coaching opportunities in the near future!
I’ve been completely hooked on horses since the grand age of 3. Outside of RDA I have my own team of lovely horses and compete regularly in eventing.
I feel very lucky to be amongst the team at Wellington RDA, it certainly is a very special place to work and it’s amazing to be a part of the good work we deliver here!
