Sydney was born and raised in West Palm Beach, FL, and graduated from Southern Illinois University in 2018 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Sport administration. Sydney was a student athlete for four years at the Division I level as a softball player, and also completed an internship with the athletic department that dealt with interacting with high-end donors and running game-day events. She returned home after graduation to pursue a Master’s degree in Business Administration (MBA) and graduated in May 2020. While in school, she was also worked at a law firm in West Palm Beach.
Although a dedicated athlete on the softball field, Sydney also gained an appreciation for horses at a very young age. With a grandfather who was a farrier for 30+ years, she took vaulting and riding lessons as a kid. Although she found her niche on the softball field, Sydney has always loved and had a great appreciation for horses and the equestrian industry.
