ROCK is excited to welcome women from throughout the local business community for a Cowgirl Bruncheon with emcee and Cowboy Hall of Famer, Patti Colbert and featuring keynote speaker and Cowgirl Hall of Famer, Dr. Eleanor Green, whose illustrious, award-winning career includes many firsts as a woman. You’ll be inspired as Dr. Green speaks on her experiences within the equine industry and shares how you can summon your own spirit of Courage and Grit.
Dr. Eleanor M. Green, Professor Emerita & Dean Emerita of Veterinary Medicine at Texas A&M University, is a Cowgirl Hall of Fame inductee, veterinary consultant, Senior Advisor/Consultant for Animal Policy Group, and Chief Medical Officer for Chou2 Pharma. Her career in equine veterinary medicine spans four decades and is comprised of many “firsts” including the first female dean of the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences at Texas A&M University, the first female president of three national veterinary associations.
Dr. Green has given frequent presentations and speeches at the local, state, national, and international levels on a variety of topics, such as leadership, innovation, the future of veterinary medicine, human animal bond, equine welfare, diversity, equity, and inclusion, teaching excellence, customer service, and philanthropy.
Patti Colbert has been a champion in the equine industry for years. She grew up in the St. Louis suburbs before moving to Texas in the 70s to begin working in the equine industry. Patti worked with the Texas Quarter Horse Association and American Quarter Horse Association before starting her own firm.

During that time she was also involved with the production of movie and television projects such as Wild Horse, Wild Ride, Unbranded, Project Cowboy and Nat Geo’s Mustang Millionaires.
