State Chair

kelly sheehan and floyd smHello, my name is Kelly Sheehan and I am excited to be the Tennessee State Chair for Region 5. I have been a PATH International registered-level instructor since 2006 and, currently, substitute instruct as I can. When I'm not at the barn, I am a Board Certified Behavior Analyst and provide Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) services to clients. In the past, I've worked in both Tennessee and Pennsylvania as a therapeutic riding instructor, and taught an undergraduate-level course on Equine-Assisted Activities. Initially, I became interested in PATH after donating my show horse at the time, Bandit, to a center in Missouri. When I left for college, I began volunteering at a PAC in Tennessee and the rest is history! I have an undergraduate degree in Early Childhood Education and Child Studies and a master's degree in Special Education, with a focus on behavior disorders. Currently, I show as an amateur with my gelding, Only In Dreams ("Floyd"). I am excited for the opportunity to serve centers in Tennessee and to coordinate activities and outreach that can benefit everyone. Please feel free to contact me with any ideas, questions, or concerns. I am here as a resource, so if I can't answer a question, I will do my best to connect you with someone who can. I look forward to meeting each of you in the coming year! Please feel free to reach out and say 'hello.'
