Georges Schneider has spent most of her life around horses. She grew up with a mother who had significant mental health issues, and her work and relationship with horses was her refuge. Through horses, she was able to connect with her own authenticity, aiding in her journey towards success. She began teaching riding professionally at the age of 16 and was drawn towards work with disabled and troubled youth and adults.
While getting her B.S. in Biology at U.C. Irvine and her MBA at U.C. Berkeley’s Haas School of Business, Georges continued to work with horses and troubled youth. Georges personally observed, and was amazed by, the power of horses to heal her students from the difficulties and challenges they faced. During her MBA Program, George was recognized for her volunteer work and became a “Haas Community Fellow.”
After graduating from the Haas School of Business in 2007, Georges developed and incorporated her own unique and innovative business called Equestrian Entries (www.equestrianentries.com), an online horse show entry platform. She undertook this work while employed within the high-tech industry - starting at Oracle, continuing into a position at Apple, and then most recently, with her current employer, Google. Georges moved to Reno, Nevada in 2012, where she began to volunteer as a mentor for tech start-ups through Summit Venture Mentoring Service. She also guest lectured at the University of Nevada, Reno Business School and judged business competitions, such as the Governor’s Cup and Sontag Entrepreneurship. Georges currently lives in Northern California and works as a Program Manager at Google in the Silicon Valley.
Georges strongly believes that individuals, including people with challenges such as substance use disorders, can benefit from the equine-human relationship and find authenticity, peace and prosperity.
