Heidi Miller, Newsletter Co-Editor 
Heidi joined our Newsletter Team in January 2018.    Working closely with the Newsletter team, Heidi will help develop content, write articles, help format, and review the newsletter.  Heidi has had a lifelong love of horses, and finally got her first horse 18 years ago.  Retired after 28 years working in a machine shop where she did everything from running machines to office work, Heidi now devotes her time to working with her beloved horses, Merlin (in picture), and Tucker (also known as "Got That Right") and working at her barn. She enjoys competing at dressage shows with both horses, and hopes to do some breed shows.    In her spare time, she also enjoys creating and producing beautiful custom embroidery.




Jill Voigt, Advertising & Classifieds Editor   

Jill joined the team in 2013.  She is the contact for all Advertisements in the newsletter and on the website, and she helps format the newsletter each month.   Jill enjoys taking photos and writing articles for the newsletter.  Along with her family, owns and operates Rosewood Stables in Columbia Station.   Jill and her daughter Stephanie own four horses:  an Appaloosa, a Paint, a Quarter Horse, and a Hanoverian Oldenburg cross.


Jessica Austin, Reporter 

Jessica joined the newsletter team in July 2017.  She is a former nurse turned family medicine resident at University Hospitals Parma.  In her not so spare time, she has started pursuing her USDF Bronze medal with her mare, Whimsical R.  Together with her husband George, she breeds and raises warmbloods and Friesians.  The farm is also home to two dogs (Golden Retriever Tiberius and Great Dane puppy Scooby Doo), and two chickens. Jessica loves classical dressage and is excited to be sharing her passion for learning through writing articles for the NODA NEWS. 


Regina Sacha-Ujczo, Reporter   
Regina officially joined the team in 2014 although she has written numerous  ad hoc articles for NODA NEWS over the years.  She is a USDF Silver and Bronze medalist devoted to the pursuit of dressage excellence. She has attended the USDF L Program and has been an Adult Amateur Participant in the USDF Trainer/Instructor Certification Classes.  Formerly a VP for FedEx, she now leverages her communication and people skills as a Freelance Writer and Manuscript Reviewer, specializing in horse-related websites, clinic reviews, and articles. She enjoys writing for the NODA NEWS and was recently awarded first-place USDF recognition for a NODA article in 2014.   Regina owns two senior horses (Fabian and Arabella) and two dogs, (German Shepherd Therapy Dog, Rexton and Terrier mix rescue, Miss Dixieland.)  Regina is an organist/soloist at her local Church, AND she is married to a very supportive horse-husband Edy Ujczo!   

Mosie Welch, Corral Magazine
Mosie joined the team in 2012.  She is responsible for coordinating advertising and NODA's monthly article for "The Corral Magazine".  
She also assists with creating NODA Flyers for various events.   Mosie has dabbled in tabulating, equipment check, scribing, and writing articles for the newsletter. Her current dressage partner is a Friesian mare, Sietske, boarded at Shade Tree Farm. At home are husband Denis and a black Standard Poodle, Supai. When not at the barn you can find Mosie hiking, playing and singing bluegrass music, or gardening.
