- How did you first hear about the CWC?
- What is your role on the CWC?
East slope angler
- Tell us about your background when it comes to conservation?
My focus is getting more millennials into conservation via fly fishing. I manage one of the largest women’s fly fishing groups in Colorado where ladies can connect, trade gear and plan trips together.
- Why are you so involved with conservation?
Being outside is also very important for my mental health and I figure others have the same feeling.
- What is your favorite wildlife species and why?
Bald Eagles – Everyone stops what they are doing to take in their circling flight.
- What is your favorite thing about living in Colorado?
There are so many different places to explore, from snowy, treeless to deserts.
- What do you wish Coloradans knew about the council or wildlife?
I wish groups that think they’re not being included … knew that they are actually being included, with an open ear. Such as farmers and non-hunting/non-fishing folks.
- What types of outdoor recreation do you partake in?
- What is your most memorable story about wildlife or being out in the wild?
Fishing: On one of my first guided fly-fishing trips, I asked why he thought the river held the biggest trout in the state. He picked up a rock and pulled off a caddis casing and squeezed out the bright green worm. “This is a healthy fishery, full of bug life.”Duck hunting: When I was in Montana with some friends, they called at a small creek full of ducks who had to investigate what they were hearing. They circled us over and over, looking for us. Pretty cool how nature reacts.
