Kristen started riding at a young age and never lost her passion for horses. She grew up locally in the Pioneer Valley, attending Smith Vocational and Agricultural High School where she was an active member of the Future Farmers of America. She earned her Associate’s degree in Business Management from Greenfield Community College, and then spent eight years working in the dairy industry, where she was milking and overseeing operations on a 150-cow dairy. She also worked for Dairy One, a herd management company, where she traveled around New England to assist multiple farms keep accurate data of the health and productivity of their animals. Kristen looks forward to pursuing her career in the horse industry and gaining valuable knowledge at Stoneleigh-Burnham.
