Who taught you to hunt? My parents, my love of hunting began when I was growing up watching both of my parents hunt and knowing I wanted to have that experience with them. I am blessed to still be making hunting memories with them, and now my children are hunting with all of us too. There is nothing like watching my parents and kids hunt together.

Do you believe we need female role models for young girls in our industry? Absolutely!
How do you train to be prepared for your season? It’s important to always be preparing whether that be for the hunt you want to happen or the self-defense situation that you pray never does. Anything we can do to prepare physically and mentally will help us in that moment when we need to act. I shoot whenever I can, eat well, work out (I really enjoy yoga), and always strive to remember that there is always room to learn more.
