United States Air force
Fayetteville, NC

I am an Active Duty member of the United States Air Force and have been for 15 years. I am a certified instructor teaching outdoor survival skills and local area survival skills for the many different states that I have lived in.
I am a wife and mom of four wonderful children and co-owner of Outdoor Passions Taxidermy with my husband, Marty. I began hunting about four years ago with thanks to my great husband.  I got the bug and can't stop.  It now is one of my biggest passions!

My second passion is to instruct women and children who want to learn more about hunting. I also want to help children with disabilities to learn all aspects of hunting. This passion comes from my two year old son who is Autistic, but can call a duck and goose call better than I can! I believe that all children with Disabilities can learn if given the chance.

I am also on the Prostaff for Command the Wild hunting products and Team Flatline Productions and a mentor for Hunters Helping Soldiers.
