Spotlight – Lea Williams
August – September 2018
Her grandmother’s country home, surrounded by horse property led to Lea’s fascination with the horse’s beauty and strength.
University in Hawaii, grad school in San Diego and a full-time job prevented Lea from acting on her love of horses until a year ago. Finishing grad school and “only” working full-time as a grants administrator at UCSD, Lea found time to devote to the horses and donkeys at LPR.
A life-long animal lover, Lea grew up with cats and dogs. She shares her home in Carlsbad with her black lab, Lily.
When you’re around Lea you can ask her about her many interests: playing volleyball, taking photographs, camping, backpacking, traveling, and the year she spent living in Japan.
Thanks, Lea for sharing your talents and passion with the wonderful LPR equines.
Spotlight – Jackie White
June – July 2018
Current volunteers are the best recruiters. It all started with a conversation about rescue horses at LPR with her cousin Kathy, and now Jackie is a mainstay volunteer!
Each day she is at LPR, Jackie learns more about helping horses. She uses this to enrich her work with women who have suffered domestic violence and are receiving assistance at the Oceanside Women’s Resource Center.
It doesn’t stop there either! Jackie has two rescue dogs, Jemma and Shelby and the three learn and grow together. Originally from Hollywood, Jackie is living with her loving mom and pops and enjoying her life. Giving horses, ponies and donkeys a second chance is the icing on the cake.
