As far back as I can remember, I always had a rod in my hand, and I was on a boat. I caught my very first Winter Steelhead at the age of 4, and it out weighed me. I have always owned more fishing rods then shoes, and I have never found a man that I couldn’t out-fish. In August 2009, My father, my fishing partner passed away, and at that time I put up my gear, dry docked my boat, and felt it time to stay on solid ground. (That didn’t last too long) The following month, I met my soon to be husband, and now fishing partner. He’s to “Blame” for introducing me to “Ditch Pickles” and an “addiction” I can’t seem to get enough of, Bass Fishing!

To me, Bass Fishing is a part of my life. It’s a piece of my heart. It is a gift that I can continue to open, wrap, and open all over again anytime I am out on the water. It’s being in connection with nature, and all of its surroundings. It is life, family, love, and Peace.

As much as I miss my father, I see him in every ripple, in every sun rise, and in every fish.


Being the President of a local Bass Club gives me a platform to be able to stand on, and reach out and accomplish many of my goals. This year, I hope to launch a youth program to help support the local youth. As the sport of Bass fishing grows, many children want to get involved, and yet have little to no guidance. My goal is to help guide them, teach them, and transform them into true sportsmen.

In the future, it’s a goal of mine to fish the LBAA tour.

Breast Cancer has touched my life, hurt my family, and taken my friend. I won’t stop until I feel like I have made the difference that is needed. Pink Fishing is a team of people that are on the same path, fighting for the same reasons, and I am honored to be a member.

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort. ~Herm Albright, quoted in Reader’s Digest, June 1995
