Darcy Woessner, CES

PROJECT HORSE EMPOWERMENT CENTER, Treasurer

 

Darcy grew up riding and competing horses, then left for other pursuits as a young adult. Darcy holds an MBA in International Business and has worked for large multinationals like Michelin Tire Corporation and Colgate-Palmolive. She has also worked as a marketing and development consultant in both the for-profit and nonprofit sectors.

During a period of professional soul-searching, Darcy returned to her passion for horses. It was at this time that Darcy came across the horse, now known as Reeses, who could no longer be ridden due to an untreated injury and found her in desperate need of care. Rescuing and rehabilitating Reeses strengthened Darcy's long-time belief that horses are powerful healers, and together Reeses and Darcy founded Project Horse in 2008.

In addition to running the organization, Darcy is very involved with client services. She is an EAGALA-certified Equine Specialist and co-facilitates many individual and group programs. Darcy is currently in the certification process as an Equine Specialist in Trauma Focused-Equine Assisted Psychotherapy. Darcy also leads the Mobile Minis community outreach programs off-site. Darcy and Fiona Fudge, one of the Mobile Minis™ team, have appeared on NBC News Channel 4 and ABC/News Channel 8's The Pet Show with Dr. Katy.

Jeff eventually went to work for Discovery Communications in their International broadcast division.  He was their "go to" engineer for a series of live remotes.  He was the lead transmission engineer for Discovery's first successful internationally transmitted live programs - "Titanic Live" and "John Glenn Returns To Space".  And he was the on-site engineer-in-charge for the 1999 Shark Week kick-off program "Live From A Shark Cage - The Bikini Atoll",.  Today he works at Intelsat in Tysons Corner, as the implementation engineer for the most sophisticated commercial communications satellite built today.  In other words - he plans/configures the satellite in advance, then sends, customers access instructions for their communications services on the satellite.

He wasn't quite sure of what to think of Project Horse at first.  But the more he was exposed to it, the more he liked it and wanted to become even more involved.   In Jeff's words, "Project Horse is on the leading edge of helping people overcome their internal struggles and empower them for the rest of their lives.  And I want to help them with that mission any way I can."  Beside being a board member, Jeff volunteers at Project Horse as a facility handyman and general worker when needed.
