At 17 years old, I qualified and was approved by the National Field Archery Association (NFAA) to turn professional in archery. I’m excited for this next step in my archery and everything I will learn as I continue to hone my skills and gain more experience.
To be the best I can be on my bow, it’s important for me to shoot with the best and compete at the highest level. But, more than that, I just love this sport and it means a lot to have the chance to represent it and be an ambassador for it through being a positive example as a professional archer athlete.
Homeschooling has provided a flexible schedule and has allowed me to train on my bow more. It has also made it possible to travel more to participate in national events and gain invaluable experience.
My other interests include reading classical books, music, and learning and studying math and science from a Catholic perspective. I love learning about the world around me through these subjects.
I am inspired to share my love of archery with others and I want to become a wife and mother.
