Brent and Crystal Fernung's Journeyman Stud in Ocala, Fla., has named Michelle Hemingway to the position of senior bloodstock associate.
Hemingway, who will primarily be responsible for stallion season sales and marketing, previously was director of bloodstock for Stonewall Farm Ocala and was a consultant to Team Valor International.
Hemingway got her start in the Thoroughbred industry in South Africa as an assistant to trainers Glen Kotzen and Joey Ramsden. Upon returning to the U.S. in 2008, she joined Adena Springs' former Ocala operation as a season sales assistant and has resided in Marion County since.
"Her knowledge, enthusiasm, and work ethic make her a perfect fit for Journeyman, and we believe our breeders and clients will benefit from her customer service and relationship-building skills," Brent Fernung said.
"I look forward to contributing to the highly respected Journeyman stallion division, as well as many other areas of the organization," Hemingway said.
