April Woodward, Newsletter Co-Editor  
April joined our Newsletter Team in November 2014.   Working closely with Rachel, she helps develops and reviews the newsletter.   She is a 2014 graduate of the University of Akron School of Law, and is a practicing attorney in Newbury, Ohio.  April and her family also own and manage Princeton Ridge Farms, a small boarding facility in Huntsburg, Ohio.  In her spare time, she enjoys retraining off-the-track thoroughbreds and preparing them for new careers, and also competes on her personal OTTB, a 2010 gelding named "Everybody Talks" (Gunner).  April and Gunner (pictured) are currently competing at Training Level, and also dabbling in lower level hunters shows and eventing.


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 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.  She is a college finance professor and, 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 Dutch Friesian.


Marcia Wrick, Classifieds Editor  
Marcia joined the team in August, 2017.  She is the contact for all Classifieds for the newsletter and website.   Originally from Oregon, Marcia has lived in northeast Ohio for 25 years.   She works in the automotive Industry, and participates in autocross and road racing -- when she isn't riding her horse or going to a horse show.   She also enjoys freelance and content writing.


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!
