from the American Horse Council
The American Horse Council has announced that Julia Andersen will serve as the director of the Unwanted Horse Coalition, which falls under the AHC umbrella.
Andersen has a background in communications and life-long passion for horses. While receiving undergraduate degrees in rhetoric/communications and fine arts from Mount St. Mary’s University, she founded the school’s equestrian team and club. She went on to earn her master’s degree in journalism from Emerson College.
Andersen worked in program development for the Discovery Channel and as an associate producer for Court TV. Most recently, Andersen worked for Maryland Life magazine as an account executive.
“I have always found my energy in horses,” Andersen said. “Working for the Unwanted Horse Coalition on the problem of the unwanted horse is the perfect opportunity for me. I am truly lucky to find a career where I can combine my experience in communications and my knowledge of the horse industry.”
