Hello lionhead fanciers and enthusiast alike, my name is Vivian Mobley and I am running for district 4 Director. Let me tell you a little bit about me, God has blessed me with my amazing husband of 19 years and we have an eighteen year old daughter. I am a traveling registered nurse, my profession has taught me patience, compassion, and dedication. These qualities is what you can expect from me as District 4 director. My love for lionhead rabbits started in 2019 which led me to become a member of ARBA as well as NALRC. My daughter and I established an ARBA registered rabbitry named Big Creek Farms and we go to 4H meetings or FFA meetings educating the youth on the responsibilities of owning and showing lionhead rabbits. Over the last 4 years studying genetics and perfecting our lines according to the Lionhead standard has been a priority for me. I have watched our breed grow and do amazing things over the years. I would promote our youth and encourage them to be more involved. I would like to expand our youth membership by getting them involved by hosting workshops and clinics on care and showing lionheads. Education is the key to our breeds success and our youth is the future therefore I look forward to helping with those key elements to any and all new members. I will make sure that I am easily accessible for any and all questions, I will stay on top of getting reports in on time and encourage participation on posting awards. Communication is very important and I want members to feel they can contact me when they have questions. I have learned so much from the NALRC and am so excited to be part of helping this amazing club grow.
Hello, my name is Breanna Hoelzeman and I am running for District 4 Director. I have been a member of NALRC and ARBA since 2021 along with raising and showing my favorite breed of rabbits, Lionheads. I am the Owner/Breeder of ARBA licensed Diamond Field Lionheads. I recently graduated high school through homeschooling and am pursuing my dream of becoming an official ARBA Judge. Currently, I work for my family on our farm and have ample free time to volunteer for this position. I love organizing and would enjoy putting together everyone's wins and helping showcase all the achievements of fellow Lionhead breeders and exhibitors. I also enjoy mentoring and helping with my local 4H clubs to educate youth on the joy of raising and showing rabbits. I appreciate your vote and look forward to serving as Director for District 4. Thank you & God Bless Y'all
For 2022 Sweepstakes Results, I placed 3rd in Overall Youth Points and placed 1st in Youth District 4 Points. I am pictured with my BIS, GC Diamond Field "Once In a Blue Moon" Blue Tort doe who earned the 6th Overall position for Youth Lionhead of the Year.

Vote Nancy Jones for D6 Director!
For those of you who may not know me my name is Nancy Jones. I have been breeding Lionheads for going on 8 years. You may have seen my rabbitry name on pedigrees; 4 Winds Hollar. I focus on Chocolate varieties. I have mentored many new breeders and shared my stock with them so that they too can be successful on the show tables. My rabbits have earned many BOB/BOS over the years. I served as D6 director shortly but resigned due to the unexpected passing of my husband and immediately after, my mother, in 2021. I recently decided it was time to jump back into my previous role as I enjoyed serving on the NALRC BOD and miss representing D6 and the camaraderie I shared with my fellow directors. I am currently Vp of LALRC who just hosted the ‘23 Lionhead Nationals in Dalton, GA. I would appreciate your support in returning to my old role! As always if you need anything please feel free to contact me on FB messenger for a quick response. Thank you!
Katie Jones Bohannon
Hi District 6 and all NALRC membership!
I am Katie Jones Bohannon and I would love the opportunity to serve our great district and all the NALRC family. Here is just a little glimpse into myself, my experience, and what I hope to bring. As always, I am an open book and love to help however and whenever I can.
I am a TN Vol at heart. Born and raised in the great state of Tennessee. I am a momma to 3 miracle children, fur momma to many many animals and have worked in vet med as a tech for most of my adult life, including ER vet med which was my favorite.
I have had rabbits for as long as I can remember. My love of lionheads started in 2017 when a beautiful BEW came into our emergency vet to be treated for GI Stasis. I was drawn to the beauty and unique personality. I admit, I started breeding genetic nightmares before attending my first show and was set straight by some incredible mentors. Since that time, I have dedicated myself to learning all I can about this wonderful breed and helping to mentor others so they may learn from my mistakes. I have been showing since 2020 and in just that short time have gotten many BOB and BOS, and just this year was blessed to have won BOSV at Nationals for my REW Jr Doe. I am also honored to be in the top 10 for 2022 and have one of the top lionheads as well. I love to show all over D6 but also love to venture into D8 & D9. I hope to get to other districts as well this upcoming year as well as show at my first convention. I love helping put on specialties and making great custom awards for those shows and promoting all the great lionhead clubs.
Currently, I am on the board of directors for LALRC and helped pull off a very successful 2023 Lionhead Nationals. I am also on the NALRC communications committee and hope to bring many educational resources to our club. We already have so many great things in the works. I will also continue to make my YouTube videos as well for those that need visual help. If I am lucky enough to get your vote, I will work diligently to make our club the best I can for everyone, not just our district. I will advocate for our memberships' wants and needs by listening to their views and concerns and taking them to the appropriate people and explore options. I would love to set up more youth specific educational programs. I truly believe in setting them up for long-term success, with
animals that are competitive on all show tables. I also want to make it easier for you to submit your wins, photos and ideas for our Mane Musings column by automating the process and in turn making it easier on our editors to compile the information.
As you can see, I have a love and passion for our Lionhead family and truly believe we are just that...family. One of my life's mottos is "Ohana". OhanonOhana means family. Family means nobody gets left behind or forgotten. We must work together as a family to get this breed to where it is meant to be, on top! Let them hear us roar!
Hello, My name is Shelley Brady. During my life, I have been involved in the competitive show world. With many different types of animals. I started raising and showing paint horses in 1998. During my horse showing career I was in the top 10 Breeders Futurity in 2000. Unfortunately, I was also diagnosed with Breast Cancer at this time. The challenge of breast/cervical cancer didn't stop me as I continued in my show career. The cancer was just a different animal that I ended up winning the battle against. I started sucesdfully showing Australian Shepherds in 2005. I'm a retired professional Groomer and was Manager/Grooming Instructor at Petco. I fell in love with showing rabbits, mainly Lionheads in 2020. I love the challenge and strive to reach as close to the standards of each breed in my barn. I find it very rewarding, but I also cherish and love all the many relationships I have built. That God has placed in my life through each journey. These relationships last for a life time. Of course, winning is a great accomplishment. The friendships that turn into family are what makes all the hard work and dedication worth it. Those that know me say, I am undoubtedly a people person.
My wonderful husband of 35 years and I have raised wonderful children, 2 Daughter's, and over 30 foster children.
So, the youth that want to get into showing just capture my heart. I have a few youths that I have helped mentor. Madison Mobley, Xander Loftin, Lotti Roberts, Mack Russell, and Hadie McDade to name a few. I love spending time helping them to excel and build confidence. I don't just hand them a winning animal; I teach them to breed for themselves and the specific goals they have set for their program. I have learned just as much from my youth as they have learned from me. It makes my heart so happy when one of them comes up to me saying, “Mrs. Shelley, my rabbit got BOV or BOB or first place” They truly are a blessing and I know we are leading our youth in the right direction to carry this breed into the future. One of my favorite passages in the Bible is, “Give a man a fish he eats for a day but teach a man to fish and he eats for a lifetime” As much as I love to win, I also love for my friends to win, that's what I love about my Lionhead Family, we are truly a family. It's better to be in the winner's circle with friends than to be a winner takes all!! I have truly passed on some of the best of my best to friends and youth. It's not always about winning it's how you play the game as a team. It’s about helping each other succeed and showing support when someone you love gets the win that they have been working towards. I also couldn’t do it without my campaign manager, Ashleigh Loftin. That's my goal and what I want to continue to achieve as District 6 director. I believe our Club has unquestionably been improving and heading in a great direction. I think I could be a great asset into helping make NALRC Great Again!!
Greetings NALRC Membership,
My name is Aaron Powers. I’m so happy to have the opportunity to run for
District 8 Director. To tell you all a little about me, I have been raising rabbits
most of my life. I’m a 26- year- old from Kentucky. I’m a Respiratory Therapist at
The Kentucky Children’s Hospital.
In my career of raising rabbits, I have had the joy of being a part of many
clubs and sitting on various committees within those clubs. I am currently sitting
on your fundraising committee and your judges selection committee. I am
currently a director within the Lower Appalachian Lionhead Rabbit Club (host of
2023 Lionhead Nationals). I was your 2023 Lionhead Nationals Merchandise and
Awards Chair. I’m also a director within The Ky State Rabbit Breeders Association.
So, I come as no stranger to working within a rabbit club.
If elected I will bring a positive and eggar attitude. I will reach out to all
parts of our district. I will listen to all members within District 8 and serve as their
voice to the board of directors. I will always encourage and educate new
breeders. I will always help and encourage our youth breeders, along with
encouraging new youth to join our breed. I will fully advocate for our breed every
time for our district and club, as I have in my own state. I will work hard to
represent my district with pride.
Hello, for those of you who don’t know me, my name is Samantha Spotts (Sam), and I’m
running for NALRC District 8 Director. I have been an ARBA member since 2016. I started off
with Flemish Giants as my first breed and then in 2018 added Lionheads to my show herd and joined the NALRC. My rabbitry is Michigan Giants & Lions, with my primary focus being the Chocolate and Lilac varieties along with Black, Blue and Rew Lionheads. I am a bit of a genetics nerd and believe that we are all constantly learning, no matter what our experience level is raising rabbits. I enjoy mentoring others and sharing any knowledge I can offer. The friendships we make in this hobby are just as important as the rabbits we are so passionate about, so if you ever see me at a show, please come say hi and don’t hesitate to reach out to me for anything!
Outside of rabbits, I am a wife of 11 years and counting (despite my rabbit obsession),
and a dog mom to four German Shepherds. I have a full-time career in Anesthesia as a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA) at The University of Michigan. I have experience serving as Secretary on the boards of several professional organizations related to my career, which will be an asset if I am elected to the NALRC District 8 Director position. I am excited to get more involved with the NALRC and keep improving this breed we all love, so please be sure to vote, and I’ll see you all at the shows!
