Andie Wilcox, Executive Manager
Andie joined Redwings in March 2017. Like many of the staff, she has had a love affair with horses since she was very young. Her dream came true when she got her first horse, Copper Lady at age 12. She began competing on her mare in hunter/jumper classes. She then went on to acquire and show additional horses under the training guidance of Jimmy Williams and school and show alongside Hap Hansen and Susie Hutchinson.
Andie grew up in La Canada/Flintridge, CA with her two brothers and spent her entire existence at Flintridge Riding Club. She went on to attend the University of Denver graduating with a degree in English Literature and a minor in Special Education. Having decided to not get her teaching degree, she worked in various fields and to did extensive volunteer work which led her to being named “The 50 People to Watch” by San Diego Magazine. Thus, her future career began. She has had 25+ years in all areas of fundraising working primarily with large hospital systems. Her grown children grew up in La Jolla and Carlsbad and she has one grandson. Her other children are Hollywood, a 12-year-old red bay gelding and a 12-year-old pug named Lulu.
Her lifelong dream has been to work on behalf of animal welfare, especially for horses in need; for those who need a voice; to end neglect, abuse and inhumane horse slaughter that continues today.
I am thrilled to be a part of the Redwings team. We will with your help, end the suffering of these regal and spiritual creatures. THANK YOU FOR CARING.
