HorseLink’s First
Director of Development and Communications

Meet Heather Floyd Newell. Heather is excited to bring over 20 years of nonprofit and fundraising experience to HorseLink. This is a big step for HorseLink, and we are thrilled to have found Heather. Her wealth of experience and compassion is exactly what we have been searching for.

She is passionate about animal welfare and she understands the link between animal – human connection and our mental health. Heather happily helps at the ranch on weekends and loves getting to know the equine retirees.

Heather looks forward to meeting each of you, and she is already spreading the word about the good work and healing happening at HorseLink.

Making her home in Bastrop, Heather enjoys spending time with her teenage daughter, Zoe, and their three dogs. She is queso and margarita-friendly and invites anyone interested in learning more about HorseLink to contact her directly.
