Born and raised in Montana, the outdoors have always been a part of my life.  When I was nine, my dad landed a record-holding Pacific Blue Marlin.  It had a profound impact and has directed me to where I am today.

During college at the University of Montana, I began learning to guide for trout.  In addition to trout, I learned to cast a two-handed rod and fish for steelhead on the Clearwater River in Idaho.  Graduating with conservation based degrees, I dedicated myself to building my guide career and preserving the resources.

While in Missoula, I proudly spent eight years with Blackfoot River Outfitters.  Along with guiding, I developed their Learn to Fly Fish and Women’s Program.

In the trout off season, I traveled to Oregon to expand my guiding skills.  I explored much of the Columbia Basin, specifically the Klickitat… one of my favorites.

Eventually, the obsession of steelhead transferred me to Washington.  With the Evening Hatch, I spend my autumns on the Klick guiding with my boyfriend, Ricky.

Guiding has defined my life, for that, I am very fortunate.  I look forward to many more years of connecting.
