My name is Rob Schnars. My educational and civilian background is in Architectural, Civil, Structural and Mechanical Engineering. I have worked on the design of bridges and highways, civil projects, commercial buildings, and natural gas mechanical piping for the marceles shale region.
On the military side, I was just a dumb grunt. My military career began in 1995 on Paris Island, SC where I was reborn as a United States Marine. After 6 years in the Marines, my unit was disbanded. So, I transferred to the PA Army National Guard where I retired after 16 years as a Mechanized Infantryman in Jun, 2017. With three combat deployments to Bosnia-Herzezovina, Iraq, and Afghanistand as everything from a machine gunner to convoy commander to platoon sergeant, I had a very rewarding and exciting career. I say it is one of the best things I have ever done that I would never want to do again.
My wife, LeeAnn spent her entire adulthood working in the Medical Field, Cardiology to be exact. LeeAnn grew up her entire life around horses, riding, training and competing. It has been her lifelong dream to own and operate a facility like Elysian Field Equestrian Center. In Oct, 2017, we made her dream come true. Now together, we operate and manage the premier horseback riding, boarding and training facility in northcentral Pennsylvania.
