Local Equine Studies Freshman
Takes Lifelong Passion to the Next Step
West Palm Beach, Florida – October 2018 Keiser University student Amandalynn Mayo and Equine Director professor Julie Snyder are available for interviews at the equestrian facility or at the university’s Flagship campus regarding Amandalynn’s educational journey as she works to realize her goal of rescuing horses. Please call Keiser University Flagship Campus Public and Media Relations Director Suzi McCreery to schedule your interview at 561.301.9583.
Like many Keiser University students reaching for the stars, Amandalynn Mayo’s compelling vision is initiating positive change. The Jupiter, Florida native’s experiences working with horses have ignited her passion to own and manage her own rescue ranch, so she has enrolled in Keiser University’s Business Administration Bachelor of Arts degree program with an Equine Studies concentration.
“Ever since my mom had offered pony rides at my second birthday party, I have loved and been closely involved with horses,” said the Flagship campus freshman.
And it was involvement with Florida Thoroughbred Retirement and Adoptive Care, which rehomes former racetrack horses, and the Equine Rescue and Adoption Foundation that saves neglected, starving, abused or uncared for horses which helped to solidify the direction of her mission.
“When I began working with rescue horses and to rehome former racetrack horses, the love I already had for animals, especially horses just went haywire. I became more in tune with them as I understood the trauma they had experienced, and after adopting Sedona, my personal rescue horse, I knew that I wanted to dedicate my career to helping horses and other animals overcome abuse,” reflected Mayo, who’d eventually like to own a ranch in which cows and other farm animals accompany the horses as she ‘lives off the land.”
“I’d observed Amandalynn’s dedication to horses for years, as she boards her horses at the same facility as I, and her passion not only for riding, but also for being an equine advocate is enormous. She is a lovely rider who actively works to make the most of every lesson and every ride on whichever horse she is riding that day. No doubt, the future for Amandalynn is very bright in the equine field,” said Julie Snyder, Keiser University’s Equestrian Director.
Mayo is diligently working toward her goal at Keiser.
“I chose my major because it’s a dream of mine to own my own company in which I’m able to rescue, train and sell or adopt horses, so learning how to efficiently manage a business plays a big role in that vision,” she said.

My instructors believed in me. They were more than instructors, they tried to get to know you as a person and tried to understand your goals so they could push you towards them. Student services helped me find a job before I even graduated. Everyone was dedicated to my overall success.
Going to Keiser University was one of the greatest experiences in my life. All of my deans, professors, and staff made me feel that I was a part of something very special, and I am. I would recommend for anyone to get their education at Keiser University.
The instructors at Keiser University impacted my life. They believed in my ability to become a great graphic designer, regardless of how I felt about my skills. KU helped to prepare me for the real world and got me to where I am today.
Beyond the curriculum of the courses, the lessons the instructors have taught me have paid dividends in my real work experiences. How to respond to criticisms, project and time management, interview skills, the list goes on and on. At the end of the day, they not only showed me how to design, but they taught me how to be a professional.
If not for my education at Keiser I probably would not be where I am today, in both life and career. It is because of going to Keiser and the instructors I had that I joined a club started by Mr. Williams, The Lakeland Shooters Photography Group, which allowed me to venture into an amazing and very creative field that I use to enhance all aspects of my life.
The Design program at Keiser University was filled with real world learning and hands on instruction… Based on the portfolio I created while a student at Keiser University, I landed a job in Graphic Design for a major online retailer immediately after graduation.
The year and a half I spent in the program better prepared me for attaining a job in the field…As a hands-on learner, the project-centered teaching was perfect for me.
Keiser University has given me the opportunity to embrace a career change… It has opened the door for a timely graduation and quick return to the work force…
Without the education I received at Keiser University, I would not be where I am today!
I not only received an excellent education but also encouragement and training that built my self-confidence every day.
I realize the amount of knowledge I gained and feel that the educational experiences have developed me in to a person who can move higher up the career ladder.
Keiser University’s MBA program has renewed my mind, changed the way I think, and given me a new sense of purpose. The professors transformed my attitude and behavior, gave me the self-confidence I was lacking, and restored my energy.
It has been great attending and graduating from Keiser University. Because of the small class sizes, I was able to build good relationships with classmates and professors. The PA professors care very much about the progress and success of the students and have been great advisors every step of the way through the program.
Attending Keiser University and getting my degree was the best decision I have ever made. The small class sizes and personalized attention helped me get my degree quickly. The hands-on experience and the education landed me a job at a neighboring law firm.
I chose Keiser because it had everything—small classes, caring professors, hands-on learning, and counselors that are really there for you. I feel like I’m part of a family here, not just a number.
After being denied for several promotions at my current employer, I decided that I needed to further my education. Since graduating from Keiser with my bachelor’s degree in Business Administration, I have been promoted and I am able to obtain positions that weren’t available to me before.
Keiser helped change my life by getting my education at the right school! I had been going to another school before, I dropped out because I felt that I was not getting enough information. When I found out about Keiser, I was pleased because the instructors were great.
My decision to attend Keiser University has been one of the best decisions I’ve made. I chose to enroll in the Information Technology program… The one-class-a-month pace helped incredibly with my self-discipline.
The BA for Business Administration at Keiser has to be one of the best in the nation. Keiser takes the basics that are taught at the Associates level and uses them to strengthen your skills and knowledge.
I found that Keiser University’s Nuclear Medicine program of advanced studies and small class size was a perfect fit. I never came across a faculty member who wasn’t truly interested.
