She has exhibited her dogs in the show ring since 1985, and handled them in AKC hunting tests since 1986. White River boasts a Hall of Fame dog and three on the ROM and ROMX rolls. She has given back to her chosen hobby and sport serving the GSP Clubs of Indiana and Middle Tennessee as an officer and committee chair, and working for the GSPCA as Breeder Education Coordinator, NSS Exec Committee Chair, and on the Shorthair Journal committee over the past 23 years.
