Other Athletic Interests & Accomplishments Outside of Archery:  In 2014, I was the Saskatchewan Bow Hunters Association (SBA) Junior Female Bow Hunter of the Year.


Personal Interests & Accomplishments Outside of Archery:  My family are hunters and bow hunting was the evolution away from fire arms. We bowhunt as a family from Sept till Dec as many as 4 days a week. I love to bear hunt. In 2014, I was able to harvest a 19  15/16 Pope and Young Black Bear while sitting on the ground at 14 yards under a Spruce Tree. I have captured all of my hunts on video and along with GUNSHY ARCHERY; we are compiling these hunts for the creation of a digital downloadable DVD Series.
