My judging goal is to move forward with my credentials by earning my USEF ‘r’ judging license by 2019. To further this goal, I re-tested at HITS on the Hudson in Saugerties, New York, in September of 2014, earning my L Grad with Distinction. I am working towards earning the ‘r’ program score requirements of five scores of 65% or higher at Fourth level or above.
