Jamie SwansonRecording Secretary
I have been involved with Border Collies since purchasing my first puppy and competing in 4-H 30 years ago. I began competing in AKC obedience competitions in 1989 and have continued competing in AKC events, gaining titles in obedience, agility, conformation, and most recently herding.
I have served in the capacity of President and Secretary for the Border Collie Club of Northern California. I was a founding member of the Sierra Nevada Border Collie Club and also served in the capacity of President and Secretary. I served as the Assistant Show Chair for the BCCNC’s inaugural specialty show and obedience trial, Conformation Chair for the 2011 BCSA National Specialty in Oregon, and Chair for the SNBCC’s inaugural specialty and obedience trial. In addition, I served as the Hospitality Chair and Seminar Coordinator for the Reno Kennel Club. More recently I have undertaken the role of Herding Committee Chair for the BCSA, and am serving on the Judges Education and Member/Public Relations committees.
My husband and I currently share our home with our three Border Collies in Central Texas. I enjoy training in herding, agility, and conformation, and occasionally I will breed a litter. My husband is a Senior Software Engineer, and I work as an Executive Administrative Assistant/Client Relationship Manager.
