She is a co-founder of NOLA Barn Hunt Friends, LLC, whose first Barn Hunt Trial was held September 20-21, 2014, in Kenner, Louisiana. She states that "Perhaps I am most proud of "Zip" who was our MACH 4 Border Collie. After a paralyzing spinal injury, she went on to thrive and even returned to agility in her wheels".
