Judy Beem, RN

Board President

Before joining AWH, Judy ran a boarding stable of 50 horses, had horses of her own, taught kids to ride, and was Board President in my 10 years in California Rangers. On top of all of this, she was also an RN. The fit couldn’t have been more perfect.

Judy had recently changed her hours as a registered nurse, and was looking for something meaningful to do with her extra time. While driving with her family in the area, Judy passed an AHEAD With Horses sign on La Tuna Canyon Rd. and had her grandson write down the telephone number. She left a message that she was interested in volunteering and began at AWH shortly thereafter.

In 2017, Judy retired as an RN. Having more time to donate, she offered to help with the paperwork for the new property. With it came the upkeep of the 2 1/2 acres: weeding, planting, watering, obtaining city permits, and guiding the many wonderful volunteer groups that came out to help us get ready for the big move. Judy refers to the acreage as her Field of Dreams and can’t wait for everyone to experience the magic of our new Forever Home! Judy stepped into the role of Board President in 2020.
