Tournament fishing since 2004. I have been blessed with a husband, Dewey, that is my partner and main supporter. We are active, enthusiastic tournament competitors who support catch-and-release fishing, and are committed to preservation and conservation of our natural resources. We have had an amazing time traveling, fishing and meeting new friends.

My aspiration is to share my experience, knowledge & the love of the outdoors with others. Pink Fishing has given me this opportunity to promote not only their high quality clothing, but also has allowed me to achieve something even greater. Through their yearly donations to breast cancer research, Pink Fishing has dedicated themselves to promoting awareness of breast cancer and empowering women with tools for early detection. EARLY DETECTION IS KEY TO BEATING BREAST CANCER! We truly are “Reeling in the Cure, one shirt or hat at a time”.
