MDGA Staff



Angelia Alden

Business Operations Manager

In 2017, Angelia embraced the life of a goat enthusiast, convinced that life is too fleeting to go without these charming creatures! She began her journey with 3 Lamanchas and 3 mini-Lamanchas. As for her current herd count, it’s a secret she keeps close.

With four decades of experience in business management and accounting under her belt, Angelia takes pleasure in contributing her expertise to MDGA, offering support to the board, staff, volunteers, and members alike.

Kellie Pinard


Kellie began raising goats in 2013 and runs a dairy located in Kissimmee Florida with a herd of around 40 Miniature Nubians. She participates in milk testing and hopefully will get into showing in the future!

Serving MDGA has become a passion for Kellie. She has a degree in accounting before being a goat farmer. Serving as Treasurer and working in registrations she loves working with fellow team members and hopes she can make MDGA a more member friendly, smooth running, informative registry that holds integrity and the Miniature Dairy goats to the highest standards.
