Welcome to Sue O'Donnell!

I'm a little delayed in getting this out, but here's my official WELCOME to MLE's newest Account Manager Sue O'Donnell!  If you've come to any MLE staffed event over the past few years, you've probably seen Sue there welcoming guests, setting up silent auctions and assisting Margaret with all the small details that go into these big events.

After years of begging, I finally convinced Sue to come on board as our newest Account Manager!  Sue brings with her years of horse care and equestrian-based retail experience, and is excited to put her diverse knowledge to good use.  A recreational rider, Sue spends her free time at the barn she shares with her mom.  On a nice day you can usually find her and her appaloosa gelding Mickey out and about on a "suburban trail ride" through the development.
