I began fly-fishing as a child with my grandfather, father, and brother for trout in the Poconos of Pennsylvania.  After college, my brother took his first saltwater trip to El Pescador Lodge on Ambergris Caye in Belize. I followed him shortly thereafter and have spent most my adult life there.  Enjoying the outdoors and conserving the environment for future generations, including my three daughters, is a motivating factor in my life.

Growing up on the Jersey Shore, I was constantly surrounded by the sights and sounds of the ocean. Living on the coast was something that I didn’t fully appreciate until I moved to northwestern Connecticut after college and felt landlocked for the first time. Soon after the move, I started working at Orvis in Avon, Connecticut, where I was offered the chance to connect with a different body of water. The store staff, management and the local guide had me out on the Farmington River several days a week, and before I knew it their passion for fly fishing quickly became mine. Fly fishing connected me to the outdoors in a way that I had never been before. When I wasn’t on the water I soon began helping instruct introductory classes and absorbing every bit of product knowledge about fly fishing I could. This soon led to a move to the Orvis Home Office in Vermont, where I now get to work with fishing products every day, connect with other anglers, and promote getting more women involved in a sport that completely altered my view of what it means to be outdoors.

I grew up in southeastern Missouri, along the Mississippi River, fishing with my dad for largemouth bass, crappie, bluegills, and catfish. It was not until a few years ago, when I met my husband, Andy, that I began fly fishing. It did not take long for me to fall in love with the sport. Once I started working for Orvis in 2017, I found this wonderful community of women who love spending time on the water. Through fly fishing and through this community, I have connected with nature in a deeper way and have become the best version of myself. Fly fishing has taken me to some amazing places. Most importantly, it has brought me to these Green Mountains of southern Vermont. I am excited to see what adventures are on the horizon, and I look forward to experiencing the future of this amazing sport!
