PATH INTERNATIONAL

Susan Becklenberg

sue-becklenbergI’m a native Missourian, and although I was born and raised as a city kid in St. Louis (Go Cards!) I’m from a family that has always had a variety of animals as part of the household. I was that kid who got a pony for Christmas when I was 10 (oh yeah – I really did), and horses have been a part of my life ever since.

My professional background includes more than 30 years of financial management experience, primarily in the non-profit fields of healthcare and education. I hold a Master of Public Administration degree from the University of Missouri – Columbia (MU), and I recently retired from MU as the Director of Business Administration for the College of Arts & Science. Previously, I was the Director of Finance for the MU School of Medicine for 14 years. So yes, I’m also a big MU Tigers fan!

I became involved with therapeutic riding 20 years ago when my children were graduating and leaving home, and I suddenly had time on my hands to fill. I began as a volunteer sidewalker and leader, and as I saw firsthand the truly amazing things that were happening in that arena, I became more and more involved. I earned my certification as a therapeutic riding instructor, qualified to be an associate site visitor, and began volunteering to serve on PATH Intl. committees. I am an avid supporter of Equine Assisted Services in general, and PATH Intl. specifically. I believe the certifications, education and support that the association provides for members, certified professionals, and member centers is a critical advantage for the continued growth and development of our industry, and ensures quality and professionalism to our stakeholders.

I’m proud to be able to say I am a member of PATH Intl. and am truly honored to serve this organization any way I can.
