The Board of Directors is the governing body of Sprout.
Individuals who sit on the board are responsible for overseeing the organization's activities.
Board members meet periodically to discuss and vote on the affairs of the organization. Additionally, board members ensure sustainability by cultivating donors and supporting fundraising efforts.
Sue and her husband (Gary) have one daughter who brought them to the love of horses and animals; their family includes 4 dogs, 3 cats and several horses. They were introduced to Sprout through their daughter’s horseback riding passion and were overjoyed by the magic of possibilities and celebrations for all participants. Watching each rider at the barn or a Sprout horse show work to attain personal accomplishments with a light in their heart is such an overwhelming blessing. We are grateful for the many gifts the Sprout leadership, staff, volunteers and students share with the community.
As a violinist from the age of four, Saskia performs with many orchestras and groups in the VA, MD and DC area and also holds a full-time position at the Library of Congress. Saskia started volunteering at Sprout in December of 2013 and instantly knew Sprout was going to hold a special place in her heart. She then joined the Board of Directors in December 2014 and is dedicated to promoting and sharing the mission of Sprout within with the Northern Virginia community. Sprout makes the “impossible”, possible. The students at Sprout bring her much joy and she loves seeing the students improve every week in their lessons. She and her husband currently reside in Reston, with their dog, Hank the Tank.
