Hello, I'm Kellyann Kash and I'm running for an Empire Club board seat. Some of you may already know me, for those that don't here's a bit about me and why I think I'd be a good fit for the position. I've ridden horses since I was 5 and began my journey with Quarter Horses and Appaloosas. In 2002 I bought a National Show Horse and in 2010 my Half Arab Hunter mare. I've fallen in love with the breed and can't imagine riding and showing anything else. Professionally I've been in law enforcement since 2013 first in a civilian position at the county jail and currently as a state Parole Officer. My experience in law enforcement has led me to be a quick thinker, good listener, and problem solver, all of which I think are great qualities for a board member to have. My love of horses and showing has provided me with vast experience as a competitor and the issues that are important when considering what shows to attend. I would bring all of this background to a board position and would use it to help make the Empire Club the best it can be!
