Windrush Farm Welcomes Board Members

Windrush Farm Welcomes Board Members
Windrush Farm, a non-profit, therapeutic horse farm serving children and adults with disabilities in North Andover recently elected two new members to serve on the organization’s board of directors; Natasha Grigg of Boxford and Carolyn Campot of Topsfield.

Natasha Grigg, a lifelong horsewoman and owner of multiple time national pair driving champion, began her relationship with Windrush Farm over thirty years ago as a volunteer in a therapeutic riding program. Her children spent their summers at the farm and Grigg participated in weekly riding lessons as part of the Tuesday morning “ladies group” at Windrush. In the 90’s, Grigg served a term on the Windrush Farm board of directors and today currently holds the position of president of the Boxford Trails Association/ Boxford Open Land Trust, Inc.

A Philadelphia native, Carolyn Campot has called New England home since 1998. She previously held the position of executive vice president of marketing for one of New England's leading construction management firms, where she earned Marketing Executive of the Year honors from the Society for Marketing Professional Services. She currently spends her time on projects such as Dressed Inc. and assisting nonprofit organizations in furthering their missions. Campot’s previous tenure on the Windrush Farm board ended in 2011 and she has now rejoined to celebrate the organization’s 50th anniversary.

“We are honored to have two friends, both whom have previously served on the Windrush Farm board, return at this exciting time in the organization,” said Amanda Hogan, Windrush Farm Executive Director. “Natasha and Carolyn both bring a unique and valuable set of experiences with them, and we look forward to working together to help further the mission of the Windrush Farm and celebrate fifty years of service.”

2014 marks 50 years of service for Windrush Farm. Celebrations will be held throughout the year leading up to the Golden Jubilee at Windrush Farm on Saturday, September 20.
