Today, Lisa is a member of the State Line Tack marketing team where she uses her equine industry knowledge to help State Line Tack connect with organizations who also want to support the equine community through experiences and education. National 4‑H Council is the newest organization to partner with State Line Tack, inspiring kids to jump to new heights through the partnership.
While there’s a clear connection between 4‑H and State Line Tack, Lisa connects with 4‑H on a more personal level.
She is a 4‑H Alumna.
Lisa’s parents immigrated to the United States from Denmark in the mid 1950s. In 1969, at the age of 8, Lisa was introduced to 4‑H. As her 4‑H experience began in Bellevue, Washington, she discovered what she truly loved – horses.
“[My mom] realized that 4‑H was a very American thing,” Lisa explained. “And 4‑H to her was the equivalent of what your child can do from start to finish.”
Like her mother, who grew up on a dairy farm, Lisa also understood the importance of valuing all animals, thanks in part to 4‑H. Because of the values learned in 4‑H, her mother spent what Lisa describes as “thousands and thousands of hours” driving her back and forth to 4‑H club meetings, events, and shows.
