Kelley Stachon

Director of Operations

Kelley Stachon came on board in January 2017 as Director of Operations in our Lexington office.  As a Lexington native, Kelley has been involved with horses most of her life. Starting early, she showed in local area shows in Combined Training and Dressage.  She took her love of horses with her to UK where she graduated with a BS in Equine Science. Directly out of college she took a position as an Assistant Farm Manager at a nearby Thoroughbred Farm where she worked for over six years. After taking some time off to start a family Kelley rejoined the workforce beginning with USEF as a Horse Recorder and Passport Representative. She went on to become the Accounts Payable Coordinator at Hagyard Equine Medical Institute located across the street from the Horse Park.  Most recently Kelley has been the Bookkeeper for Bradley Thoroughbreds.  Kelley brings with her a long history in the Equine Industry and a deep love of horses and the Equestrian world.

Drew Kemerling

Registrar

Drew Kemerling, originally from Lawrence, Kansas, has been with the KWPN-NA since January 2016. She is a 2014 graduate of Georgetown College with a Bachelors in English and a minor in Spanish. Her background in the sport horse industry has come in handy when working for the KWPN-NA. Her favorite part about working for the KWPN-NA is being able to help members with registration, transfers and learning about bloodlines.

Outside of the organization, Drew has 17 years of horse experience and competes her Thoroughbreds, Nancy Drew and Ginisee in Dressage and Eventing. Her son Nathan is also a budding horseman and loves to spend time at the barn riding his favorite horses.
Drew is your contact for questions and any other aspect of the KWPN-NA that you may need assistance with.
