BETH RASIN

EXECUTIVE EDITOR
When Beth arrived at the Chronicle in 1995 for a five-month internship, everything she owned fit into her Honda Civic. More than 20 years later, she spends her free time on the farm she shares with her husband, daughter, three horses, three rescued dogs and a snake.

As executive editor, Beth oversees the content of all Chronicle products. In addition to editing, she coordinates assignments with columnists, freelancers and staff, as well as working in conjunction with the publisher and CFO to ensure that the content complements the organization’s overall goals and plans.

She graduated from Middlebury College ...

SARA LIESER

MANAGING EDITOR
Sara has had a variety of roles at the Chronicle since she began as an intern at the end of 2003. She spends most of her time editing, organizing and managing the website.

A graduate "C-3" from Penobscot Pony Club (Maine), she spent a year working for Denny Emerson before attending Amherst College (Massachusetts) and is now learning the sport from the ground up by training her own horses. She and her husband, Eric, and children, Zachary and Hannah, share their 20-acre farm with two dogs, two cats, and an ever-changing number of horses.

LISA SLADE

SENIOR EDITOR AND UNTACKED EDITOR
Lisa grew up riding lower level dressage in North Carolina and graduated from Virginia Intermont College with a degree in English literature. After writing for nearly every publication in Knoxville, Tenn., she moved to Middleburg and started working for the Chronicle in 2008.

She's now relocated back to Knoxville, Tenn., where she spends her free time eventing her off-the-track Thoroughbred mare, Skills, and hanging out with her corgi, Leo. Still new to the sport of eventing and a pretty big chicken, she'll be the person at your next event wondering if her novice table is actually intermediate height.

MOLLIE BAILEY

SENIOR REPORTER AND MARKETING COORDINATOR
Mollie has been with the Chronicle since 2007 and writes mainly news and features about the hunter/jumper circuit.

She grew up training with SBS Farms in Buffalo, N.Y., showing in hunters and equitation, and worked for Susie Schoellkopf and Jen Alfano for several years after graduating from the writing seminars program at Johns Hopkins University (Md.).

She lived in Europe and Brazil before settling in Middleburg, Va., where she lives with a (theoretically) rotating slate of foster cats and hunts with Piedmont Fox Hounds.

SHARON ROSE

EDITORIAL STAFF
Sharon has been with the Chronicle since 1984, and serves as the results editor. She manages the production of the annual Horse Show Issue, and collects all the results that go in the magazine.

To Sharon, faith, family and music are most important. She grew up in a little country church, that she still attends. She's been the church organist and pianist for 28 years and Sunday School teacher for more than 30 years. She's also the missions leader and music director. Music and singing are her passion and she's sung with a community group, The Loudoun Chorale, for ...

LINDSAY BERRETH

EDITORIAL STAFF
Lindsay is a 2010 graduate of George Mason University (Virginia) and interned for the Chronicle in the fall of 2010. She returned in 2012 as a full-time staff member.

She grew up in Fredericksburg, Virginia, and currently lives in Leesburg, Virginia. She's competed to the preliminary level in eventing with her off-the-track Thoroughbred Oh So Extreme. She's currently competing him at the lower levels in his twilight years and earned her USDF bronze medal in 2018.

Lindsay mostly covers eventing for the Chronicle and has a passion for photography and travel.

KIMBERLY LOUSHIN

EDITORIAL STAFF
Kimberly grew up in Alpharetta, Ga., and graduated from the University of Georgia’s journalism school. She began interning with the Chronicle in January 2014 and joined the staff at the end of the year. You'll find her primarily covering the hunter/jumper circuit, but she tries to cover a few events and dressage competitions yearly.

She’s shown her off-track Thoroughbred Corey in hunters, jumpers and equitation, and developed (potentially unwise) interest in eventing since moving to Virginia with a variety of quirky Thoroughbreds. She raised dogs for the Guide Dog Foundation in college and adopted her fluffy princess, Wasabi, from ...

LAURA LEMON

EDITORIAL STAFF
Starting her internship a few days after graduating from Washington and Lee University (Va.) in 2016 with honors in art history and mass communications, Laura was officially hired in October that year as the resident office dog photographer, proud hunter princess and news and feature writer for the hunter/jumper world.

Born and raised in Roanoke, Va., Laura started in horses simply because she played a game of monkey-see-monkey-do with her big sister Allison. From ponies to amateur-owners, she worked her way up the hunter ranks, later competing and captaining for her college’s IHSA program. Nowadays when she’s not holed ...

KIERAN PAULSEN

EDITORIAL STAFF
Kieran grew up in Silver Spring, Maryland, and rode weekly at a local lesson barn where he fell in love with the toughest horses in the program. He’s dabbled in jumpers and eventing but mainly focuses on dressage. He graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2017 and interned at The Chronicle before accepting a fulltime position.

MARTHA DRUM

Martha joined the Chronicle in 2019 from a previous position covering foxhunting and related topics. She also operated a lesson and hunt livery stable in central Virginia and now shares the family farm with several retired school horses and other critters.

Martha grew up in Wellesley, Massachusetts and graduated from Wesleyan University (Connecticut).

LAUREN FOLEY

EDITORIAL PRODUCTION MANAGER
Lauren originally came on board in Oct. 2009 for a marketing role and also served as circulation manager for two years.

She began riding in kindergarten, focusing on hunters and equitation for most of that time. She competed in the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association while earning her bachelor’s degree in Rhetoric & Communications at Mount St. Mary’s College (Md.) and rode as an IHSA alumni for two years following graduate school at Drexel University (Pa.) where she studied Publication Management.

She doesn’t horse show as much as she used to, but she has aspirations of one day riding ...

SONYA MENDEKE

She loves her job, especially working every day with images of beautiful horses.

ADRIENNE MARTINEZ

SENIOR DESIGNER
Adrienne, a newlywed and lover of chocolate, was born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas. She has two brothers, so needless to say she loves sports and she grew up playing softball. After graduating with a B.A. in Graphic Design she moved to the lovely city of Austin, Texas. She’s interned and worked for two local publications in Austin but is now part of the Chronicle family.

She loves visiting family and friends back in Fort Worth, when she can, but now that she’s married she has her wonderful husband drive the 3½ hour trip for her. She also ...

LINDA ANDERSEN

ADVERTISING DIRECTOR
Linda has more than 30 years in publishing and a lifelong passion in the saddle riding mostly Thoroughbreds across a variety of disciplines. She's an avid supporter of the sport horse industry’s evolution. She telecommutes from her office outside of Boston. When she’s not creating winning marketing programs for the Chronicle’s advertising customers, she enjoys time with her family; foxhunting with Vermont’s North Country Hounds; trail riding her retired event horse, Macon; cuddling with her mini donkey, Jack; and hiking with her husband and two rescue labs, Wilson and Macy.

ABBY FOLTZ

ADVERTISING SALES AND PRODUCTION MANAGER
Abby joined the Chronicle team from an enterprise software sales background after graduating from Georgetown University (D.C.) in 2016. During that time, she competed through the preliminary level of eventing with her somewhat (very) dramatic OTTB, What Everett Takes.

Working alongside Zoey, her golden retriever/Chief Goofiness Officer (CGO), Abby oversees all aspects of ad collection, organization and production for our print, digital and social media platforms. You might also catch her out and about in Area II (or III, depending on the temperature), competing her exciting young prospect, Absolute Zero/Elsa/the ice queen. #letitgo
