I have been a member of WAM since 2017 and on the board for the past 3 years. I was the social director during covid and organized many online events with speakers and education. The past year, I have been in the trip director position. I have always loved planning the family vacations and took that love To plan trips for our Wamily. With your support, I would love to continue to plan these trips and bring people together doing what We all love to do and what brought us together.
A little about me, I grew up in small-town Wisconsin on a dairy farm. With the family business, fishing was never part of our lives. My Grandpa did some sunny fishing and I went with him a few times before I moved to Minnesota to continue my education after high school. It was not until I met my husband that I fished again. He is an avid walleye fisherman and taught me about fishing for the Minnesota state fish. After a couple years, I wanted to learn more about other species and gain more knowledge, so I started joining events with the DNR program BOW and fished for bass and also joined a BOW group to learn about Sturgeon. I then found WAM and have not only gained a lot of knowledge and techniques, I have gained lifetime friends.
