Brandi was born and raised in Pennsylvania, and was introduced to the world of equine at age 6, when her grandfather had pony rides at her birthday party. When asked to choose a sport to play, she was quick to choose horses. Brandi originally attended Cedar Crest College in 2008, majoring in Psychology, but soon felt she wasn’t where she needed to be. After working at a medical practice for a few years as an OR tech and medical biller, she felt there was more out there for her. She has now returned to college, though this time at Centenary University, studying Animal Health with a concentration in Equine Pre-Vet. At Centenary, Brandi is part of the Hunter-Jumper Team. Outside of school and work, Brandi was married at Disney World in 2019 and lives in NJ with her husband and 2 labs, Dinozzo and Eleanor. In what little free time she does have, she spends it with her own horse, Leo, training in dressage which happens to be Leo’s passion and is also involved in a chorale where she is a soprano 1 in her hometown.
