2022 gspca election

Teresa McCreightVice President: Teresa McCreight [email Teresa]

Hi y’all from Atlanta, GA! My name is Teresa McCreight and I would like to be your Vice-
President.

I grew up in Myrtle Beach, SC and spent many childhood years on my grandparent’s
cotton/tobacco farm. I graduated from Wofford College in Spartanburg, SC and began my professional career in sales. I have worked for several companies all focused on professional services. Ironically, my last firm was “Labrador”, a Paris-based financial and sustainability communications firm named after our CEO’s hunting dogs. I am married with two grown boys and soon-to-be daughter in-law. I am currently “semi-retired” doing contract work including some background work in Georgia’s movie industry.

My bird dog background is much more interesting. I purchased my first GSP almost ten years ago as a running buddy. I quickly learned he needed a much brisker pace than I could offer. We worked on basic obedience and earned his CGC. I read about about field trials and decided to show up at a horseback trial that was hosted by the GSP Club of Atlanta. I met a group of women who offered to take me to their training lease and put him on birds. I was hooked! My son, who was in high school at the time, and I trained a few weekends with another new friend and got a Junior Hunter title. After some professional help, I earned his Senior Hunter title and won several points towards a Field Championship.

Since then we’ve added two more to our pack. We’ve finished an FC/AFC/MH and have a CH who is also working on field titles. We have also dabbled in conformation, obedience and agility. We plan to do some very limited breeding with the goal of producing Dual Champions.

I am currently the treasurer of the Vizsla Club of Metro Atlanta, secretary of the GSP Club of Atlanta, volunteer/member of the Atlanta Kennel Club, Co-Chair of GSPCA’s National Amateur Gun Dog Championship and field editor of the Shorthair Journal. I was honored to be asked to
judge field trials last season and have more assignments lined up for the fall.

My “non-canine” volunteer background includes PTA, football, lacrosse, and wrestling team support, and high school sports booster club. When I’m not taking care of my dogs and family, I enjoy cooking, hiking/running and fiber arts.

If elected, I intend to do my best to support all of the venues of interest to our members and to be available for member’s questions and/or concerns.

Thank you for your consideration.
