Meet the New Equestrian Director- Sara Oviatt
By Emma O’Brien
Q: Where are you from originally?
A: I grew up in Spencer, Iowa. Since college, I’ve spent time in Colorado and New Jersey. I like to move around and meet new people and explore new places. I can’t wait to explore Southern Illinois.
Q: What was your favorite job before now?
A: I’ve done almost every job possible at camp in my 12 summers at various camps and my favorite was Arts and Crafts. I don’t consider myself very creative or artsy, but I loved that job a lot. My favorite craft projects were pretzel art, tie dye, and paper making.
Q: How long did it take you to be able to spell Ondessonk without thinking about it?
A: I could spell Ondessonk right away. I still can’t spell Illinois right on the first try though!
Q: What’s your favorite horse so far?
A: My favorite horse so far is probably Fitzgerald. He always wants to stick his head in the door and say hello.
A: Not sure what my superhero name would be. Like I said-I’m not very creative. I usually need friends to help me pick out my Halloween costume.
Q: What’s the best season?
A: The best season is fall. The weather is great, there’s a lot to do, and there is time to relax and unwind after summer camp. My favorite day of the year is probably the very first day it snows! I love it!
