Bringing more than twenty years of professional and equestrian experience to Wesleyan, Baker serves as head coach for the equestrian team, director for the Nancy Ellis Knox Equestrian Center, adjunct professor, senior associate athletic director, and community lessons instructor. Baker’s goal is for students to learn lessons and skills that they can use in every aspect of their lives from working with horses. "Horses are very special creatures that teach us responsibility, courage, empathy, and humbleness. There is so much potential for this program to provide amazing opportunities to students and the community."
Baker earned her bachelor of science degree in biology from St. Edwards University in Austin, Texas, and masters degrees from Texas A&M University (educational administration) and The University of Arkansas (business administration). Her certifications include Licensed Official FEI Federation - Equestrian International and IEA Steward.
