Jena, Assistant Office Manager
Jena has worked at HLAH as Assistant Office Manager since April of 2001. She lives with her fiancée Chris and 2 dogs – both Yorkies – Piper, the little dog with a big ‘tude, and Maisey, the “favorite” (just don’t tell Piper). Her hobbies include hanging out with friends, watching movies with Chris, and snuggling with her pets. Jena’s favorite thing about Horseshoe is the close bond she has with a lot of the clients.
Christina (you may hear us call her “Snyder”) has been a Receptionist and Technician at Horseshoe since May of 2004. She lives with her husband, Brad, and 3 dogs. Fester is a Chihuahua mix who likes to smile showing all of his teeth, Ellie May is an English Pointer whose nickname “Do-do-bird” says it all, and Zoey is the sweetest Chihuahua ever. Christina enjoys bow hunting, and spending time doing anything in the outdoors. Her favorite thing about working at Horseshoe is the friends she has made while working here; we are all a big family.
Rachel has worked for us as a Receptionist since April 2014. She lives with her roommate and four cats – Milo, Abby, Fred, and Mew. In her spare time, Rachel enjoys watching Netflix. Her favorite thing about Horseshoe is working with her roommate and playing with all the kitties.

In her spare time, Mindy enjoys riding her horses, spending time with family and friends, working out at the gym, playing with her nephew, watching the Blues play, and playing indoor soccer. Mindy says she loves working with all the pets that come in and all her coworkers. She says she already feels like part of the family!
